Opportunities for Indigenous Research Support

Opportunities for Indigenous Research Support

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is pleased to announce their latest research commissioning round. NPM is a Centre of Research Excellence (CORE) in the field of indigenous development, with three research priorities as follows:

Optimising Māori Economic Performance – harnessing the contribution of Māori peoples to New Zealand’s economic development through increased, successful and positive participation in the general economy and through distinctive Māori contributions to economic development.

Fostering Te Pā Harakeke – understanding, achieving and maintaining healthy and prosperous families of mana and the lessons this may hold for New Zealand families overall.

Enhancing Māori Distinctiveness – understanding and yielding the distinctive contribution that Māori peoples make and may yet make to New Zealand society, culture, economy and overall prosperity.

These research priorities are the focus for our new projects. The latest research commissioning is being undertaken via two streams: New Research and Expanding Excellence.

The New Research stream is an open commissioning process. Projects will receive up to $300,000 for two years, commencing on the 1st December 2013 and concluding on 30th November 2015. The closing date for Expressions of Interest for the New Research stream is Tuesday, 30th April 2013.

NPM will also invest to extend the potential, value, outputs and outcomes of pre-existing NPM projects in the Expanding Excellence stream. Applicants for Expanding Excellence are invited from our Principal Investigators.

All criteria, forms and details regarding both streams are listed at http://www.maramatanga.ac.nz/funding/research

Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga (NPM) is a Centre of Research Excellence consisting of 16 participating research entities and hosted by The University of Auckland. NPM conducts research of relevance to Māori communities and is an important vehicle by which New Zealand continues to be a key player in global indigenous research and affairs. Its research is underpinned by the vision to realise the creative potential of Māori communities and to bring about positive change and transformation in the nation and wider world.

Gordon Campbell: On The Tokenism Of New Zealand's Role Against Islamic State

To date, the Opposition has continued to occupy itself with the marginalia of the issue. E.g. whether Key did or didn’t know whether Barack Obama would be present at the US briefing last week on IS, or whether New Zealand’s military involvement is or isn’t already a fait accompli.

It might be better to tackle the issue, head on. Our contribution against IS will be to send SAS forces to train the Iraqis? That’s like offering trainers to General Custer just as the 7th cavalry reached the Little Big Horn.
