Abstract This paper summarises the findings of PhD research intended to provide critical insight into resistance in the street-level delivery of Workfare in Australia. This research contributes to critical social policy studies by developing a new theory of resistance: the interest-based account (IBA). It also contributes to social movement theory by observing the conditions in which resistance coalesces into collective action.
