The Struggle for Sovereignty

The Struggle for Sovereignty

New Zealand and Twenty-First Century Statehood

In the era of public choice and free markets, does the New Zealand state still have the best interests of its individual citizens at heart? Since 1984, as Margaret Wilson argues, the shift to a neo-liberal public policy framework has profoundly affected the country’s sovereignty. In this far-sighted BWB Text, Professor Wilson draws on a wealth of knowledge and experience to assess the future of New Zealand statehood in a globalised world.
