Māori Traditional Knowledge and the Wai 262 Report: A Coherent Way Forward?


Lai, Jessica Christine (2012). Māori Traditional Knowledge and the Wai 262 Report: A Coherent Way Forward? i-call Working Paper Series 03, Universität Luzern.

Abstract

Twenty years after it was first filed, the Wai 262 report was finally handed to the New Zealand Government on 2 July 2011. Making recommendations on the place of Māori in New Zealand with respect to their cultural heritage, such as their traditional cultural expressions, traditional knowledge and guardianship role over these and fauna and flora, the report has the potential to change the future of New Zealand research practice, trade and intellectual property rights. This paper analyses the recommendations made in the report, focussing on the claims made over taonga species (treasured species, with guardians) and related mātauranga Māori (traditional knowledge). It further addresses whether the recommendations are internally coherent, create coherency between different areas of law and are consistent with New Zealand’s international obligations. In doing so, it attempts to fill in details left out by the Tribunal.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
