2014 Maori Research Hui

The Value and Future of Māori Research Workshop 2014

Needs and opportunities facing Māori communities are critically important to New Zealand’s future development. The ‘Māori dimension’ of New Zealand society, culture and economy is a ‘net national opportunity’ as these communities are now on the cusp of a new era of development signalled by, among other things, the settlement of major Treaty claims.

Research concerning these needs and opportunities – and with high Māori involvement, utilising Māori knowledge, methodologies and approaches – is crucial to enable Māori communities to cross this threshold into a new era of development and yield this ‘national opportunity’.
