In New Treaty, New Tradition: Reconciling New Zealand and Maori Law (University of British Columbia Press, 2016), Carwyn Jones, Senior Lecturer in the School of Law at Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand, explores Māori law and legal traditions with an eye on how they ebb and flow with changing social, environmental, and political circumstances in New Zealand. From the Treaty of Waitangi to recent land claim resolutions, Jones argues that genuine reconciliation needs to take into account Indigenous traditions in the settlement process.
