Te Herenga Waka—Victoria University of Wellington’s 2023 Woodhouse Fellow will explore the groundbreaking ideas behind Aotearoa New Zealand’s ACC scheme, to suggest a framework that can, and should, be used to address contemporary challenges such as climate change and public health.

Richard Gaskins, Professor Emeritus at Brandeis University in Boston, says it’s disheartening political discussion hasn’t caught up with the very morally urgent approach Sir Owen Woodhouse, ‘the father of ACC’, took.

“An important reason for digging into the background of Sir Owen’s work is to reach back some 50 years, before the rise of neoliberalism, and connect with clear alternative principles—reminding us of roads not taken.

“His once-radical framework could inspire modern solutions to global problems, and by understanding this, we can seek bolder, more comprehensive actions against the pressing issues of our time.”
