Article
Qualitative research is a process of storytelling, but whose story are we telling and from what perspective? We examine Kenneth Pike’s work on emic and etic approaches to qualitative inquiry and explore how, over time, etic has come to refer to settler-colonial research while emic is seen as relating to Othered life-worlds outside academia. Researc...

This article will look at two such policies: the Youth Development Strategy Aotearoa (YDSA) and the Youth Offending Strategy (YOS).

Using contemporary research methodologies with young people can, and does, pose many ethical challenges for researchers keen to fully incorporate principles of participation and voice into their research endeavours.

In this thesis I examine the discursive subject of ‘criminal woman’ to uncover possible ‘gaps’ and ‘silences’ on the discursive ground on which ‘she’ stands. To do this I will apply a feminist post-structural reading, interpretation, and analysis to literature, and the experiences of two ‘women’ who have previously been imprisoned in Aotearoa/New Z...

It is through evaluative research that the process of reflection and learning-in-action can occur for many practitioners in the field of education: from policy to the classroom and teacher practice. It has been argued that that the most reliable and valid technique of evaluative resear...

In 2002, New Zealand had a national election in which adult commentators and observers concentrated and speculated on the reasons for a supposed increase in youth deviance and a spate of extraordinarily violent youth crimes. Youth-at-risk, early intervention, t...
