Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga's Strategic Direction document outlines NPM's direction through to 2020.

Ko te Māori e arataki ana i a Aotearoa ki te ao kei mua

Our Matakitenga or Vision translates to 'Māori Leading New Zealand into the future' and our research realises Māori aspirations for positive engagement in national life and the future of the country.

A new book, written by a Victoria University of Wellington academic and supported by an NPM Publication Support Grant, argues that genuine and durable reconciliation can occur only when the importance of Māori legal traditions in the Treaty of Waitangi settlement process is recognised.

New Treaty, New Tradition—written by Dr Carwyn Jones, a senior lecturer in Victoria’s Faculty of Law and a leading academic in the area of Māori and indigenous peoples’ legal issues—will be launched at the Faculty of Law on Thursday 8 December.

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga – New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence (NPM) is currently seeding a suite of new projects that will deliver positive change through vital Māori research.

NPM recently supported its vast network of Māori researchers and scholars around the country in developing new projects that will produce important strategic outcomes for our communities and the nation.

He ao! He ao! He Aotearoa!
