As with many other countries, New Zealand has experienced both sweeping economic and social reform and growing poverty and income inequality in the last twenty years. The changes in New Zealand are part of a much wider international set of economic and political changes, including changes in the role and function of social security and income support. This book examines the social-security and income-support changes in that wider context. It looks at a range of excluded groups, especially children, women, lone parents, disabled people, and minority ethnic communities, particularly Māori (the indigenous people of New Zealand) and Pacific peoples.
