We are happy to write with some good news.
It was announced on 4th November 2014 that our Chair, Professor Margaret Mutu, has been awarded a significant grant by the Marsden Fund to do groundbreaking research on the treaty claims settlement process.
The Marsden Fund takes its name from physicist Sir Ernest Marsden (1889-1970) who made a remarkable contribution to science both in New Zealand and overseas. For more details about his life see Biography of Sir Ernest Marsden. The fund supports excellence in science, engineering, maths, social sciences and the humanities in New Zealand by providing grants for investigator-initiated research.
Margaret's research on "What do the claimants say? Reconceptualising the treaty claims settlement process" will extend the research and analysis she has already done at a local level on the settlements of Te Rarawa, Ngai Takoto and Te Aupouri, and take it to the national level.
