The Waitangi Tribunal and the regulation of Maori protest

Tauri, Juan & Webb, Robert (2011) The Waitangi Tribunal and the regulation of Maori protest. New Zealand Sociology, 26(Specia), pp. 21-41.


Much of the current academic and political discourse related the development and operations of the Waitangi Tribunal over its first twenty years portray it as a forum that provided Māori with a meaningful avenue for settling Treaty grievances compared to the formal legal systems performance in the preceding 100 years. In contrast, we argue that from its inception and throughout much of the 1980s, the Waitangi Tribunal functioned primarily as an informal justice forum that assisted the New Zealand state’s regulation of Māori Treaty activism during the transition from a Fordist to a Post-Fordist mode of capital accumulation.
