In order to further deepen what we learned in our international society lectures on multiculturalism and living in a multiethnic society, we attended a workshop from October 18th to the 24th in New Zealand.
This year’s theme was “Living with the Maori.” We visited the country of New Zealand, known for being a developed country which protects the rights of their natives. We examined how they continue to protect the Maori peoples’ rights and what problems they’ve had.
