This paper explores some implications for New Zealand's rural community of Britain's Foot-and-Mouth epidemic in the light of growing international trade and travel, and changes in New Zealand’s rural society. The paper includes ecological mapping with a projected/likely spatial distribution of an epidemic in New Zealand, and an assessment of the possible institutional and social responses in the wake of a disease outbreak. It notes the course of the epidemic in Britain, and possible differences and similarities in institutional response frameworks between Britain and New Zealand.
