Rameka, Lesley – Australian Journal of Indigenous Education, 2017
Before the arrival of Europeans in Aotearoa, New Zealand and their subsequent settlement in the 1800s, there was no concept of a Maori identity. Over time, however, as a result of rapid colonisation, Maori became a minority population in New Zealand. Consequently, the term Maori as normal or usual, began to lose its meaning (Webber, 2008), and…

Higher education confers significant private and social benefits.

Lourie, Megan – New Zealand Journal of Educational Studies, 2016

This 'gap or bridge' wording captures the paradoxical nature of the intercultural space, for which the 'hyphen' is a shorthand symbol or sign. There are options on either…

Mika, Carl; Stewart, Georgina – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2016
