He Whenua Taurikura is an annual national hui which brings together people from across society to build relationships and understanding of countering violent extremism and terrorism. They were a recommendation of the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the terrorist attack on Christchurch masjidain.
He Whenua Taurikura Hui 2023
The focus of the year’s He Whenua Taurikura hui will be on preventing radicalisation and further harm from violent extremism in Aotearoa New Zealand. This theme builds on last year’s hui topics and aligns with the recommendations from the 2022 Coordinated Review of events leading up to the attack at New Lynn Countdown.
The hui is hosted by the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet in partnership with He Whenua Taurikura, the National Centre of Research Excellence.
We aim to include a diversity of voices at the hui, and attendees and presenters will be selected primarily based on their involvement in the research, delivery and practice of disengagement programmes and initiatives.
A detailed programme will be available closer to the date.
Attending the Hui
As with previous years, attendance numbers at the hui will be limited to ensure participants can fully engage in hui activities. Invitations will be sent in August.
A live stream of the speeches, panel events, and resources will be available on the DPMC website for those who could not attend in person.
