This week Peter Williams is back on Taxpayer Talk with a highly anticipated interview with Auckland University's Dr Claire Charters. Claire's research has focused on indigenous peoples’ rights in international and constitutional law, including how the Treaty of Waitangi should interact with our legal system.
Claire was one of the authors of the Government's controversial He Puapua report that, among other things, recommends a separate Māori court system, health system and parliament. Peter sits down with Claire to discuss what path New Zealand's constitution should be taking and whether co-governance has a place within New Zealand.
Also this week, Peter discusses some of the correspondence sent through to him by the listeners.
