This research report summarises findings and observations arising from the Advancing marine protection through cross-cultural dialogue project, which examines community-driven, collaborative marine protection campaigns currently being pursued in Northland. This project consists of a series of case studies undertaken between 2012–2014 and draws on data obtained from archival research, semistructured interviews with campaign participants, and published documents.
The aims of these case studies have been to compare different approaches taken towards marine protection in Northland and to understand the composition of effective marine protection campaigns, within the context of collaborative approaches to environmental management and the communicative processes underpinning these engagements. The report provides a number of insights into how contemporary marine protection campaigns have been developed and the place of cross-cultural (Māori – non-Māori) collaboration and communication within these processes.
