This study on the nature of privilege sheds light on how those with the least advantage are positioned to seem as though they are receiving ‘special benefits’, while unearned advantages that accrue to the privileged remain invisible and unscrutinised, particularly by those that benefit the most from them.

This research reviewed international and local best practice models of freshwater management partnerships and provided guidance to the Ngāti Hori of the East Cost on their local stream.
