Workman given Stout research post
Justice reform advocate Kim Workman from Ngati Kahungunu and Rangitaane has been awarded the 2015 J.D Stout Fellowship.
Professor Lydia Wevers, the director of Victoria University’s Stout Research Centre of New Zealand where the former policeman and public servant will be based, says Mr Workman combines a lifetime of grassroots engagement with reformist thinking.
The fellowship will allow him to complete a book on the development of the criminal justice system in New Zealand.
Criminal Justice, the State and Maori will document the history of Maori in the criminal justice system and examine the relationship between punitiveness and neoliberalism.
