Stephen Winter from the School of Social Sciences at the University of Auckland talks about his big question, “how do we respond to survivors of institutional abuse in care?”

Winter tends to work on questions of state wrongdoing and its redress. At present, he is engaged in a long-term research project concerning the redress of institutional child abuse. He is also interested in theories of rights, democracy, questions of collective responsibility, the nature of political obligation and other related areas.

Stephen Winter is a Senior Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at the University of Auckland. He is an expert in normative political theory.
