ISBN 9781915271396





Racism in the Aotearoa New Zealand education system doesn’t just impact Māori and Pacific people.

In this book, the authors – originally from Africa and Asia – explore their experiences of post-graduate learning, particularly the issues of race, racial politics, and how racism is encountered in Aotearoa New Zealand. Drawn from lived experience, these fictionalised narratives bring together the authors’ experiences with those of other international students and themes arising from ethnographic research.
