The Social Policy Unit's Submission to the Māori Affairs Select Committee inquiry into the determinants of well-being for Māori children.
'We humbly submit that other worldviews, particularly around a biblical and Tikanga Māori view, should be considered in this discourse around Māori children—and for all children. We urge a review of our past to inform our future actions as a nation. Finally, The Army presents these indicators detailed in our recent State of the Nation as directly relevant and critical in this inquiry into the determinants of well-being for Māori children. These indicators are essentially determinants that we urge the Government to monitor and use when setting and implementing policy.'
We welcome your comments, including feedback on our reports and ideas for making positive social change.
