On Thursday 12 September, Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence (NPM) released its third Te Arotahi paper calling on government to pay even closer attention to the issues of whānau and whakapapa within the criminal justice system.  This paper advocates for the development of a new paradigm of transformative justice based on whānau development that values tino rangatiratanga and tikanga Māori.

Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia kōrero
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia tika
Whakawaiwaitia te reo kia Māori

Nei rā te whakatau hei arataki nei i a tātou,
Hāunga rā mō te wiki, mō te Mahuru Māori rānei,
Heoti, mō āke tonu anō.

Whakatōkia te reo ki te hirikapo ihumanea,
Kia tīparehia te matenga
Hei huia kaimanawa māu,
Mā tō whānau, mā tō iwi anō hoki.

Te Reo me ngā tikanga Māori

An important issue gaining a great deal of profile and traction online and in the media recently has been the ethnic makeup of professors and academics at New Zealand Universities.

This interest originated out of a study and consequent papers published in the most recent issue of NPM's MAI Journal: A New Zealand Journal of Indigenous Scholarship - written by Dr Sereana Naepi and Dr Tara McAllister, along with her co-authors Associate Professor Joanna Kidman and Drs' Reremoana Theodore and Olivia Rowley.
