Social studies education plays a critical role in developing young people as active and engaged citizens in uncertain, complex times. This edited collection presents the latest research, ideas and practice in the social studies learning area in Aotearoa New Zealand. The writers challenge educators and policy makers to think deeply about the purpose of social studies and its transformative potential for citizenship education. They embrace social studies as "the contested, fluid collision zone of differences value systems" and they seek to inspire teachers at all levels to explore the potential for learning to incorporate critical and authentic social action.

This book celebrates and reflects on what it takes to build a dynamic community of Māori scholars. It is the story of the community that was purposefully nurtured through the Māori and Indigenous Graduate Enhancement programme (MAI) and the International Indigenous Writing retreats organised by Ngā Pae o Te Māramatanga, Aotearoa New Zealand’s Māori Centre of Research Excellence. The vision was to grow indigenous research and researchers and the achievement is evident in this collection.
