Tanya Jurado is in the final stages of her Ph.D. at Massey University, New Zealand. Her research examines how small and medium enterprise policy has developed over the 1978-2008 period in New Zealand. By applying a historical perspective to this analysis Tanya brings out the broader socio-economic backdrop under which policymakers and SME owners/managers operated. Tanya has worked as a Researcher of SMEs for several years. She holds an MA in history from Auckland University and is interested in using oral history in future research projects. Currently she lives in Brussels, Belgium.
