  • Free Admission

Selwyn Community Education is based at Selwyn College, Kohimarama, Auckland.

With Dr Lisa Marriott.

Lisa Marriott will report on research findings showing that individuals in New Zealand are likely to receive different treatments in the justice system depending on whether their crime is ‘white-collar’ or ‘blue-collar’. The presentation will also report on a range of other situations where individuals who have fewer resources will be treated more harshly than those who have greater resources.

Lisa Marriott is an Associate Professor of Taxation at Victoria University of Wellington’s School of Accounting and Commercial Law. Lisa’s research interests include social justice and inequality, and the behavioural impacts of taxation. In 2013 Lisa was awarded a Royal Society of New Zealand Marsden Grant to investigate the different treatments of tax evasion and welfare fraud in the New Zealand justice system. Lisa has worked in the industry in the private sector in the United Kingdom and in the New Zealand public sector. For the past eight years, Lisa has worked in academia.
