Te Puna Ora o Mataatua to address United Nations

Te Puna Ora O Mataatua will present a review of NZ Governments Report 2017.

We are pleased to announce that the Director of our Health and Populations Research Institute, Dr Annemarie-Gillies, has been selected to attend and present at the United Nations Economic, Social and Cultural Rights Committee in Geneva. 

Dr Annemarie Gillies will present Te Puna Ora o Mataatua’s review of the New Zealand Governments Report that was submitted in May 2017.

Major Recommendations

Articles
1(1) and 1(3) relating to self-determination have not been reported on;

the implementation of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples has not been reported on;

that a standing question on the implementation on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples be included in all periodic reporting;

the transformational framework of Whānau Ora designed by Māori in meeting the economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations of Māori has a marginalised acknowledgement in the report.

Funding structures for Māori organisations or providers in addressing the issues of well-being of whānau, hapū and Iwi are disproportionate and
discriminatory.

That while there has been a change of government in New Zealand, breaches of economic, social and cultural rights of Māori are historical, systematic and structural.

That questions relating to entrenchment mechanisms in meeting the economic, social and cultural rights of Māori, alongside policy questions, be included in all periodic reporting.

Dr Gillies will be in Geneva the week of 19-23 March 2018.
