NEW ZEALAND

Andrew D. Trlinand Paul Spoonley

The study of race relations in New Zealand has been uneven in terms of both the quality of the material produced and its coverage. Relatively few attempts have been made to develop a systematic theoretical framework. In contrast, there have been some excellent studies of various minority groups. This is due to the influence of anthropology which has a long history of research in New Zealand compared with the relatively recent arrivals of sociology and political science.

The presence of an indigenous Polynesian group was an important factor in attracting European-trained anthropologists and collectors. This anthropological tradition is still active, and it is characterized by a concern with the notions of ethnic group and ethnicity. But this emphasis on the cultural uniqueness and adaptations of a particular group has meant that social science research has placed considerably less emphasis on the relations between groups and on the broader questions of the social and economic context. Thus, there are relatively few ethnographic studies of the dominant white group, or on the way in which the issues of racism and ethnicity intersect with economic and political relations. Obviously, these theoretical and empirical inadequacies will be reflected here, compounded by the substantial transformation of New Zealand's race relations in the 1980s.

Before proceeding to the discussion of these issues, there is one epistemological point to be made. Throughout the text the term "race" is used as a socially constructed concept. Patterns of phenotypical variation are invested with social significance, and the task here is to investigate the way in which race is perceived and has meaning in a specific context, New Zealand. (For an elaboration of this point, see R. Miles and P. Spoonley.) 1
