3 - Approaches to Nationhood

From Concepts Of Nationhood, 4:00 pm on 2 March 2008

Māori approaches to nationhood are analysed by Prof Ngatata Love from Victoria University of Wellington, and Prof Giselle Byrnes takes a dissenting view of the debate about nationhood as she seeks to question conventional concepts of who we are. The Rt Hon Sir Geoffrey Palmer, president of the Law Commission, explores the function of symbols in the development of our sense of ourselves as New Zealanders.
