Event description


Webinar: Taxes, Treaty Settlements and Māori Health - The Value of Research in Public Health discourse.

Dr Marewa Glover will share her whakaaro on recent research focusing on a comparative analysis of taxes, Treaty Settlements and the severely disproportionate social and health inequities experienced by Māori. Dr Glover will discuss the importance of community research in relation to public health and why she felt that the commissioning of this research was necessary. She will discuss the principles that underpin kaupapa Māori research, why and when to comission research and when to do it yourself, and how research findings can be used to frame public discourse and influence social change.
