Pacific migration, European expansion and the Treaty of Waitangi

15 points



This course introduces students to the history of the Pacific with a specific focus on European influence in the region where issues of development-based economies, colonisation, decolonisation and globalisation have major influences on its peoples and their communities. In following the patterns of Pasifika migration and European expansion, the course also reveals the making of the Treaty of Waitangi and examines current Treaty discourses that are taking place within Aotearoa / New Zealand.
