International Migration in New Zealand: Context, Components and Policy Issues

Journal of Population Research
Issue Special ed. 2002 (Sept 2002)

Abstract: This paper reviews the context and components of, and the policy issues surrounding, international migration to and from New Zealand. It first outlines the country's distinctive migration and settlement history before discussing the close interconnection between immigration and late twentieth century Maori concern to, under the Treaty of Waitangi, resuscitate indigenous culture and reclaim control over various natural resources. New Zealand's trans-Tasman connection is then examined, followed by its respectively longstanding and more recent links to the island nations of the Pacific and (Chinese goldminers apart) Asia. The paper concludes with an assessment of the likely course of international migration into the twenty-first century.
