Raetihi & Ohakune are two small & remote towns on the North Island’s Central Plateau. They have similar sized populations yet present as totally different communities. This research details the stories of these towns, set within the context of wider changes. Theories of civil society & social capital provide a framework for analysis of the internal dynamics of the communities. As such, they contribute possible explanations for existing disparities, as well as strategies to address them.
