Treaty Debate Series 2013 – My Voice Counts

This year, we focus on the place of the Treaty of Waitangi in New Zealand’s constitutional arrangements. Participants include two prominent lawyers and a panel of young people.

What’s the place of the Treaty of Waitangi in New Zealand’s constitutional arrangements? Lawyers Matthew Palmer, specialist in public law, and Moana Jackson, specialist in Treaty of Waitangi and constitutional issues, discuss this topic in our first Treaty Debate of 2013.

The event is introduced by Claudia Orange, Te Papa’s Treaty of Waitangi scholar, and Carwyn Jones, from the New Zealand Centre for Public Law.

The Treaty Debates are organised by Te Papa in partnership with the New Zealand Centre for Public Law at Victoria University of Wellington.
