Māori and Social IssuesBook - 2011
Māori and Social Issues is a collection of chapters by specialists in their disciplinary areas from various social and health sciences. This book is the first of a series of edited collections that will look at Māori research in areas that are critical for Māori and for the broader society. This volume canvases a range of social issues that are significant for a better understanding of the experiences and social environment of Māori and highlight the need to ensure research-based solutions to the challenges presently faced. While a number of chapters play the important role of contexualising Māori experience, the majority of the contributions engage with social problems. However, this book is not a call to a return to deficit research. Rather it is an opportunity to provide power-centred, Māori-centred perspectives and solutions.
