Book launch: New Treaty, New Tradition

Date: 8 December 2016

Time: 5.30 pm

Venue: Salmond Room, Level 2, Government Buildings, Faculty of Law, 55 Lambton Quay, Wellington

The Pro Vice-Chancellor and Dean of Law, Professor Mark Hickford, invites you to celebrate the publication of New Treaty, New Tradition by Dr Carwyn Jones, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Te Wairoa.

In New Treaty, New Tradition, Carwyn Jones provides a timely re-examination of the Treaty of Waitangi claims settlement process. Combining thoughtful analysis with Māori storytelling, this book makes the case that genuine and durable reconciliation can occur only when we recognise the importance of Māori legal traditions in the settlement process.

Join Dr Carwyn Jones and Justice Joe Williams to officially launch this book.

RSVP to law-events@vuw.ac.nz by Monday 5 December
