The Treaty of Waitangi and Research Ethics in Aotearoa
Hudson, Maui L.
Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 2009 March; 6(1): 61-68
Researchers, when engaging with Ma-ori communities, are in a process of relationship building and this process can be guided by the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi, partnership, participation and protection. The main concerns for many indigenous peoples in research revolve around respect for their indigenous rights, control over research processes and reciprocity within research relationships to ensure that equitable benefits are realised within indigenous groups. Ma-ori have identified similar issues and these concerns can be aligned with the principles of the Treaty of Waitangi. The relevance of the Treaty of Waitangi to research ethics is discussed and this paper suggests a revised interpretation of the treaty principles to incorporate the range of ethical issues that Ma-ori have expressed as important.
