Researchers at the University of Waikato have received $2.16 million in funding to conduct the first national survey of family and sexual violence for Māori.

The funding was awarded by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) through the Endeavour Fund to the He Waka Eke Noa: Maori Cultural Frameworks for Violence Prevention and Intervention

The research project will conduct a national survey to examine prevalence rates of family and sexual violence for Māori and will also ask about pathways for intervention and prevention. 

According to the University of Waikato news, the survey is part of a "... wider four-year project, which will provide an evidence based measure of the prevalence of family and sexual violence for Māori, and extend that to prevention and intervention grounded in Māori culturally defined programmes and initiatives."
