Beyond Biculturalism

the politics of an indigenous minority

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Beyond Biculturalism is a critical analysis of contemporary Maori public policy. Bicultural political theory dominated Maori/Crown relationships during the 1980s. Biculturalism inevitably makes Maori the junior partner in a colonial relationship that obstructs maori aspirations to self-determination. The politics of indigeneity and self-determination are discussed as alternative political ideas for thinking about Maori relationships with the state. Against this background and by drawing on Australian and Canadian comparisons, the book examines contemporary Maori political issues such as the Foreshore and Seabed Act 2004, Maori parliamentary representation,the 'one law for all' ideology, settlements of Maori grievances against the Crown, and Maori economic development.
