He Aha Te Mahere Mahi Ā-Motu Mō Te Whakakore Kaikiritanga?    

Ko ngā Mahere Mahi ā-Motu mō te Whakakore Kaikiri, he mahere mahi ka whakatakoto mai i ngā urupare me ngā whāinga, ka tautohu i ngā mahi ka whāia e ngā kāwanatanga hei whakatairanga i te ōritetanga ā-iwi me te whakakore kaikiri.  Ka taea tētahi rauemi mō ngā mahere mahi ā-motu te tirotiro ki konei, he mea mahi nā te Tari o te Kaikōmihana Matua mō ngā Tika Tāngata a te Kotahitanga o te Ao. 

Ko te Kawenata ā-Ao mō te Whakakore i ngā Āhuatanga Katoa o te Whakatoiharatanga ā-Mātāwaka (CERD), he tiriti nā te Kotahitanga o te Ao ka whakahere i ōna mema ki ngā mahi hei whakakore i te kaikiri, hei whakatairanga māramatanga ki waenga i ngā iwi o te ao. I kuhu atu te Kāwanatanga o Aotearoa ki tēnei tiriti i te tau 1972 Kei tēnei tiriti, kua whai takohanga te Kāwanatanga ki te “whai, mā ngā huarahi katoa e rite ana me te kore takaroa, i tētahi kaupapahere mō te whakakore i ngā āhuatanga katoa o te whakatoiharatanga ā-mātāwaka”.

He Aha E Whāia Nei Tēnei Huarahi? 

He take nui whakaharahara te kaikiri ki Aotearoa. Ka ara mai i ia rā, ka whakatautō i te haere whakamua o te tokomaha o ngā tāngata i tō tātau motu. Māna ka whakakore i te ōritetanga ā-tangata, ka whāngai i te mauāhara ā-iwi.  

Kei te whai tika tātau katoa kia tōkeke te whai wāhi atu ki te ao i runga i te whakaute me te wātea hoki i te kaikiri. He tino pou te kore-whakatoihara me te mana ōrite ki roto i ngā ture tika tangata o te ao. Ahakoa tēnei, ka pā kino tonu mai te whakatoihara ā-tōrangapū, ā-mātāwaka hoki ki ngā iwi o te ao, tae mai hoki ki Aotearoa nei.  

Ko Te Tiriti O Waitangi  

Kei Te Tiriti o Waitangi ko tētahi tauira mō te anamata tupu matomato o Aotearoa. Kei tēnei mahi, ka hua mai ngā huarahi hei whakatairanga i ngā māramatanga hou ki Te Tiriti, i ngā hononga hou, me ngā mahi e haere tonu nei hei aukati atu i te kaikiri. Ka raua atu ki ngā mahi nei, ko te whakatōmua i ngā kupu tonu o Te Tiriti o Waitangi (1840) ki te reo Māori me te whai whakaaro ki Te Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nū Tīreni (1835). Ka aro tēnei mahi ki ngā kitenga a Te Rōpū Whakamana i Te Tiriti o Waitangi, pēnei i tāna kupu e kī nei kāhore ngā rangatira i haina i Te Tiriti o Waitangi i tuku i ō rātau tino rangatiratanga.

What Is A National Action Plan Against Racism?   

National Action Plans Against Racism are action-oriented documents which set out solutions and goals, identifying the steps governments will take to promote racial equality and eliminate racism.   You can view a resource on national action plans from the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights here. 

The International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination (ICERD) is a United Nations treaty that commits members to the elimination of racial discrimination and the promotion of understanding between all races. The New Zealand government has been party to ICERD since 1972. Under the treaty, it has committed to “undertake to pursue by all appropriate means and without delay a policy of eliminating racial discrimination in all its forms”.  

Why Is This Happening? 

Racism is a critical issue in Aotearoa New Zealand. It continues to occur daily, hindering progress for many people in our country. It denies them basic equality and fuels ethnic hatred.  

We all have the right to be treated fairly, with respect, and to be free from racial discrimination. Non-discrimination and equality are fundamental principles of international human rights law. Nevertheless, political, racial and ethnic discrimination continues to negatively affect people across the world, including here in Aotearoa New Zealand. 

Te Tiriti O Waitangi 

Te Tiriti o Waitangi provides the blueprint for a flourishing future for Aotearoa New Zealand. This work will provide opportunities to highlight evolving Tiriti understandings, relationships, and on-going transformation in addressing racism. This includes respecting the primacy of the Tiriti o Waitangi (1840) text in te reo and building on He Whakaputanga o te Rangatiratanga o Nū Tīreni (1835). The work will consider the findings of the Waitangi Tribunal, such as the acknowledgement that rangatira who signed te Tiriti o Waitangi did not cede their tino rangatiratanga.
