Navigation for Concepts Of Nationhood

In 1907, a milestone occurred in the development of the New Zealand national identity. The declaration of Dominion status meant that New Zealand was no longer a colony, but a dominion within the British Empire.

One hundred years later on 26 September 2007, an industrial-strength lineup of historical, legal and constitutional experts met to explore what Dominion status meant at the time, and what it means to us now.

This RNZ series provides a major four-part exploration of themes relating to who we are, and how we have begun to redefine our independence as a sovereign country, and how we might develop in the future.

Recorded in the Great Hall at Parliament in Wellington.
