He Whenua Taurikura Hui 2022

Date: 30 October – 1 November 2022
Location: Central Auckland 

Background

The first annual He Whenua Taurikura Hui 2021 was held in Christchurch in June 2021.

He Whenua Taurikura Hui 2022

This year, the focus of the hui was on all-of-society approaches to whakahōtaetae – preventing terrorism and violent extremism in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Almost 300 people attended the hui in person. Approximately 15 percent of attendees were from academia, 40 percent were from communities and civil society, and approximately one third were representatives of central and local government.

We acknowledge Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei as mana whenua who hosted the hui and provided manaakitanga to the attendees, creating a safe space to hold challenging but important conversations.

The programme structure and the topics discussed were based on the four thematic outcomes identified in Aotearoa Katoa, the draft strategic framework for preventing and countering violent extremism (due to be released shortly).

Those outcomes are:

  • Individuals that are down, or heading down, a path of radicalisation to violence are supported from further harm.
  • Messages of hate and intolerance that promote violent extremism are countered.
  • A safer online environment mitigating risks of radicalisation.
  • Enhanced awareness and understanding of radicalisation and extremism.
