Māori and colonial concepts of 'border'.
Aotearoa New Zealand’s geographical borders may seem obvious and unproblematic, but their history is more interesting than you may suppose.

This talk explores the impact of Māori and colonial concepts of ‘border’ on our view of our country, and what bounds and binds us today.

About the speaker:
Dr Germana Nicklin researches and teaches border security and related policy.

She has had over 30 years’ experience in the public sector and brings a wealth of practical security experience from 17 1/2 years in the New Zealand Customs Service where she held various senior strategic advisory roles that exposed her to the security environment both nationally and internationally.

Dr Nicklin holds a PhD in Public Policy for which she received a Dean's Award, a Post-Graduate Diploma in Strategic Studies, and a Master of Public Policy with Distinction, all from Victoria University of Wellington.
