A set of three lectures by Professor Mason Durie will consider the impacts of demographic change, global transformation, and technological innovation on leadership, the Māori economy, indigenous aspirations and Māori policy. Implications for Māori health, the Māori resource base, and the position of Māori in Aotearoa New Zealand will be explored within the context of a rapidly changing world where Māori are both challenged and enriched by globalisation.
