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.


Any 15 points at 100 level from ANTH, CULT, HIST, HSRV, MAOR, POLS, SOCI, or
SOWK, or
any 60 points at 100 level from the Schedule V of the BA.
