A fair go for all? Rite tahi tatou katoa? Addressing Structural Discrimination in Public Services


This report identifies the barriers to ethnic equality in New Zealand through a process of research and engagement with public service agencies, researchers and affected groups and individuals. The report analyses the ways in which structural discrimination manifests in four key systems—health, education, justice and the public service. Through a series of case studies, the report provides insight on promising initiatives; good practices and resources intended to address the systematic inequalities. The report provides specific examples of disadvantages faced by Maori and Pacific peoples.
