MĀORI  335

Mana Taketake / Indigenous Sovereignty and Public Policy

Please note: this is archived course information from 2021 for MĀORI 335.


This course examines the nature of the claims that indigenous peoples are making and the political strategies that they use to pursue their self-determining agendas in both domestic and international arenas. Concepts of indigenous and human rights, redistributive justice and others are discussed and explored in relation to contemporary demands of self-determination.

The course seeks to develop a contextual awareness of political, social, cultural and economic relationships between Māori and other indigenous peoples and the settler states. It aims to enable students to develop a capacity to think critically about contemporary practice and policy formation in New Zealand and elsewhere and the way they relate to indigenous peoples.
