This course uses the Treaty of Waitangi to frame examinations of contemporary New Zealand society. We ask questions designed to highlight and emphasise the relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi to everyday New Zealanders. In addition, the course looks at the importance of this document in the maintenance of Crown and Maori relations. Topics covered range from the signing of the Treaty, and historical developments, to the protest movements and activism of the continuing Maori renaissance period, race relations and one law-for-all.
Students will: Gain a broader understanding of the position of Māori and Indigenous development today; Increase their understanding of the historical, philosophical, social, cultural, political, global and environmental factors impacting on Māori and Indigenous development; Gain an understanding of the relationship between Māori and Indigenous development as it relates to levels of partnership, protection and participation; Gain an awareness of issues concerning rights, social justice and equity as it relates to Māori and Indigenous development aspirations; and Have opportunities to discuss and engage in current issues directly related to Māori and Indigenous development.
