What could WAI 262 hold for the future?

The much anticipated Waitangi Tribunal Report has not yet been released but the issues are ongoing. This Seminar provides an opportunity for speakers and participants to engage in a discussion on the many challenges and opportunities WAI 262 presents for matauranga Maori, science, legal, political, cultural, social and economic issues, as well as possible options for settlement. The seminar features five prominent commentators.
