About this course

Note: The MBCNR is currently not open to new enrolments.Around the world, there is a growing recognition of the rights of indigenous people to access and govern their natural resources. In many countries, this recognition has led to development of co-governance approaches, where differing groups seek to govern together in a collaborative manner.To support the growing use of co-governance approaches, we need to prepare culturally aware graduates with strong analytical and interpersonal skills, who can identify the limitation in our current ways of working, and then work in a collaborative manner to break down barriers in process and to enact change. Students of the Master of Bicultural Co-Governance of Natural Resources (MBCNR) will develop a deep understanding of the complex relationships between the multiple stakeholders in natural resources. This course will also develop consultation skills, bicultural awareness, project management, and knowledge of conservation and co-governance policy. This taught Master's programme has a particular focus on Aotearoa New Zealand, reflecting the principles of Te Tiriti o Waitangi the Treaty of Waitangi. It will also draw on material from a selection of Pacific Island nations. Students will critically examine external treaty responsibilities and relevant cultural relationships globally.
