IIRC18 is our biennial international conference for the sharing of premiere Māori and Indigenous knowledge, research and scholarship. An event not to be missed, we invite and welcome Indigenous researchers from all parts of the world to our place. Come to Aotearoa New Zealand, to our beautiful city of Auckland, to our gathering place at Waipapa marae, to Tānenuiārangi, Tāmaki Makaura Auckland. Be inspired by excellence, connection, creativity, deep thought and scholar activism.
Embracing the overarching conference theme of ‘Indigenous Futures’ there will be something for everyone – pre-conference workshops, keynotes, paper presentations, posters, movies and performances. Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga, New Zealand’s Māori Centre for Research Excellence, will be honoured by your presence. Nau mai, haere mai!
