Māori in the privatised military industry

From Nine To Noon, 9:33 am on 17 November 2015

Maria Bargh is a senior lecturer in Maori studies at Victoria University of Wellington, and has been a political commentator for several elections. Her latest research sheds light on an industry that largely operates unseen, but is highly relevant in the current global political climate. Her book, 'A Hidden Economy: Maori in the Privatised Military Industry', includes the stories of four men and one woman, who have worked, or are still working in the privatised military industry, and explores their contribution to the Maori economy while giving a glimpse into a secret and complex world.
