A post-doctoral roadshow

6 June, 2014

A post-doctoral roadshow

This year’s Research Management Law Association (RMLA) roadshow topic is ‘Conditions of Consent’, a topic that came about partly due to the research of University of Waikato doctoral student Marie Brown.

The RMLA works to promote understanding of resource management law and its implementation. It takes its message on the road to inform members about topical issues in the often delicate and controversial field of environmental law.

Dr Brown completed her PhD with professors Bruce Clarkson and Barry Barton, graduating in April 2014, and now works as the Senior Policy Analyst for the Environmental Defence Society.

Dr Brown’s PhD research focused on environmental monitoring and how pre-agreed ecological compensation was being met across 245 conditions in 81 different resource consents granted across New Zealand. She found that as many as a third of resource consent holders were not complying with their obligations set under consents granted based on the ecological measures promised by them.

The roadshow, which will include workshops, will travel the length of New Zealand with presentations in 10 cities during July and August. The workshop includes a range of speakers including Principal Judge of the Environment Court, Laurie Newhook.

Dr Brown says she is honoured to be invited to participate in such an important programme of workshops.

“Securing better outcomes from resource management in New Zealand is vital to our economy and our environment,” she says.

“Promoting good governance is a passion of mine, and is part of the overall ethos of the Environmental Defence Society, which I am fortunate to work for.”

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
