Localising Neoliberalism: Indigenist Brokerage in the New Zealand University
Rata, Elizabeth
Globalisation, Societies and Education, v8 n4 p527-542 Nov 2010
The examination of indigenist interests in the New Zealand university is framed by a theoretical understanding of indigeneity as a strategy in regulating social organisation and resource management in neoliberal global capitalism. Three stages of the brokerage of indigenist interests are identified. These are: the production and representation of indigenous knowledge; the use of Treaty of Waitangi partnership and principles to connect the tribe and the university; and the use of specific policies and practices to put the Treaty principles into operation. Studies of the penetration of Treaty compliance into everyday university operations, exemplified in the analysis of indigenous knowledge discourse and university policy documents, are used to demonstrate the brokerage of indigenist interests and the tensions that result from that brokerage.
