Darrin Hodgetts is professor of societal psychology at Massey University. He's critical of what he calls the "victim blaming, punitive approach" to welfare in Aotearoa, which is punishing the poor for being poor, and he's calling for a more caring and humane approach to those suffering in poverty.

Urban poverty, penal welfare and health inequalities, by Professor Hodgetts and Dr Ottilie Stolte from the University of Waikato, is due out later this year.
