Join our free webinar to hear Dr Juan Tauri – a.k.a The Indigenous Criminologist – present on the challenges and opportunities for improving Māori justice outcomes, following the recent social sector reforms. These have the potential to make significant changes to allow for a more just system and society in Aotearoa.
Dr Tauri will bring his experience from working in the public sector and academia in Aotearoa and overseas to share his insights, cynicism and hopes for radical change and how we as public, private, social and community sector organisations need to lead systemic change.
