Auckland, New Zealand. The conference will highlight indigeneity and the multidisciplinary approach used for indigenous development. Presentations will address all aspects of the following themes central to the realisation of indigenous development:
• Optimising Indigenous Economic Wellbeing – addressing issues, needs and opportunities arising in Maori and indigenous communities leading to increased economic independence and self-determination.
• Healthy and Thriving Indigenous Families – addressing issues, needs and opportunities arising in indigenous families leading to health, successful and thriving indigenous families.
• Enhancing Indigenous Distinctiveness – understanding the distinctive contributions that indigenous communities – people, knowledge, assets, resources – do and may yet make to the world at large. Yielding opportunities for development that may not be sourced from any other community or population.
