Te Mātāhauariki Research Institute

Te Mātāhauariki is a university research institute associated with the School of Law. At present the institute’s main research is funded by the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology.

The overall aim of this research is to explore ways in which the legal system of Aotearoa/New Zealand can evolve so as to accommodate the best of the values and concepts of both major components of its society, and to generate a discourse through publications, seminars, and intercourse with key institutions, which proposes a cohesive jurisprudence and offers models for its practical application to selected areas of our legal system. Intensive research is also being undertaken to identify key concepts, philosophies, beliefs, values, customs, ethics and practices that form Māori law and jurisprudence, and the influences on these, in order to discover the extent to which Māori law and jurisprudence might contribute to existing legal and political arrangements in New Zealand.
