Sociology is applied in New Zealand in numerous ways to planning, resource management and social change through social impact assessment (SIA). Sociological thinking and thinkers have played a significant part in the development of SIA since the late 1970s. This article traces the genesis of SIA in major energy projects, through neo-liberal restructuring to recent applications, and examines, in particular, the issues for sociologists in the nexus between theory and practice.
