MAI Journal is currently calling for papers to contribute to a special issue on Whai Rawa: Research for Maori Economies. Whai Rawa refers to the diverse modes of Maori economies in both contemporary and historical contexts. This special issue will contribute to and enrich the burgeoning body of research and literature regarding Maori economies with the view to enhance the economic performance of Maori communities while maintaining consistency with matauranga and tikanga Maori.
This special issue will be guest-edited by Ngā Pae’s Whai Rawa Co-Theme Leaders Associate Professor Mānuka Henare and Dr. Shaun Awatere. The theme leaders have been working with a host of Māori business researchers throughout the country along with other Māori experts in the tertiary education and corporate sectors to help realise the strategic outcomes of NPM.
Manuscripts should make a significant contribution to the field and extend the boundaries of Indigenous scholarship with the view to develop new theories, models and tools that will enhance the profitability and value of diverse Maori businesses and enterprises. Contributions will also contribute new understandings and approaches for effective leadership and governance of Maori resources.

To be considered for inclusion in this special issue, papers should be submitted through our submission portal no later than the 1st of September 2017. Please indicate in the ‘Notes to the Editors’ section that you want to be included in the Special Issue. We recommend early submission.
