Aotearoa History kete o te wānanga: Biculturalism in Aotearoa/New Zealand
The Human Rights Commission was set up in 1977 and works under the Human Rights Act 1993. Our purpose is to promote and protect the human rights of all people in Aotearoa New Zealand. We work for a free, fair, safe and just New Zealand, where diversity is valued and human dignity and rights are respected. In this section you can find out more about who we are, what we do and why.
As a small agency with a wide remit to support outcomes for tangata whenua, almost one-sixth of the population of Aotearoa New Zealand, Te Puni Kōkiri has to make careful choices about where to focus its efforts. Our three strategic priorities reflect the organisation’s intention to provide more focussed effort within a narrower work programme.
