Research is primarily based on Māori approaches to planning and environmental management and the application of the Treaty of Waitangi across different social, economic, political and environmental contests. This provides opportunities for examining Māori perspectives on topics as diverse as tourism and recreation, environmental risk assessment, biodiversity and intellectual and cultural property.
There are opportunities for graduates in the public service/public sector, Iwi authorities and teaching and research. It is possible to incorporate Māori Development study into all postgraduate qualifications at Lincoln.
