    Gulliver, P; Fanslow, Janet (2012)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Issues Paper reviews some of the available sources of data on family violence, assesses strengths and limitations of these data sources for measuring trends in family violence, and seeks to assist the reader to develop an understanding of the issues associated with family violence data collections. Government agencies, non-government organisations and researchers all require reliable measures of family violence to understand the magnitude of the problem, to appropriately target resources, and to identify strategies that are effective in reducing and ultimately eliminating family violence. In this paper we: Draw attention to the data that is currently available in New Zealand; Assess the strengths and weaknesses of this data in relation to monitoring trends in family violence at the population level; Highlight opportunities for further development of existing datasets, drawing on the experiences of other developed countries; Consider some of the implications for reporting family violence data at the national level; and Suggest some future courses of action which could support the development of reliable and valid family violence indicators.

  • Beyond Zero Tolerance: key issues and future directions for family violence work in New Zealand

    Fanslow, Janet (2005)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    Summary: This report provides a broad outline of areas of family violence, such as child, intimate partner and elder abuse. An overview is provided of some of the pertinent issues surrounding these types of abuse, including prevalence, incidence, consequences, and risk and protective factors. This report highlights that to fully address family violence, interventions must go beyond the individual and the family to include recognition of community and societal factors. From a health perspective, this report identifies a number of gaps - perceived or otherwise - in the research, approaches and responses to family violence in New Zealand. These gaps must be explored, assessed and evaluated to ensure programme accountability. Theoretical frameworks to address violence are discussed as the author combines the Ecological Model and the Coordinated Community Action Model to produce a new integrated conceptual initiative. This three-dimensional model proposes a multi-levelled intersectoral approach to eliminating family violence. Finally, this report suggests that a collaborative approach, integrating research, policy, advocacy and practice will sustain family violence prevention strategies in the long-term.

  • Report on the Human Rights of the Rapa Nui People on Easter Island

    Chartier, C; Chirif, A; Tomas, Violet (2012)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    An international Observers Report to assess human rights violations of Rapa Nui people by the Chilean government. For its preparation, the observers visited Easter Island and Santiago, the capital of Chile, in the month of August 2011, where they held meetings with traditional authorities and Rapa Nui organizations, Chilean authorities, Mapuche indigenous organizations and human rights entities. The Report was prompted by acts of police violence and criminalization of the territorial claims of the Rapa Nui peoples which occurred in the years 2010 and 2011.

  • A Detailed Review of the Worldwide Reinjection Experience in Power ProducingGeothermal Fields

    Kaya, Eylem; Zarrouk, Sadiq; O'Sullivan, M; Brockbank, K (2014-02-24)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    In 2010 we conducted a review of the worldwide experiences with injection in geothermal fields based on information from 91 electric-power producing geothermal projects. In the present review we have extended the database to include detailed information about these fields: such as their installed capacity, reservoir information, production and injection conditions, their reinjection strategies and response of different type of geothermal reservoirs to these strategies. The reports and articles available in the open literature were the main source of this review report. Additional information is also presented in the database in order to provide details about each field. This information is summarized in tables and includes data relevant to the steamfield (drilled area, number of production and injection wells, type of reservoir, reservoir temperature and average enthalpy, reservoir depth), to the power plant (type of plant, installed capacity, annual electricity production, number of units, total and steam production rates) and to the type of reinjection (injection strategy and rate). Experience from these ninety-one electric-power producing geothermal fields shows that: a reinjection plan should be planned at the very earliest stages of field development and is likely to change with time depending on the response of the field to various strategies. An optimum reinjection design should balance the requirements to sustain the reservoir pressure and to prevent early breakthrough of cold reinjected water. Also the effects of reinjection on the natural hot recharge, and therefore on energy recovery from the system is an important matter to consider.

  • Institutional Integrity, Corruption, and Taxation

    Brock, Gillian (2014-03-13)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    What is institutional integrity and how is it related to institutional corruption? In the first part of this paper an account of institutional corruption is presented, such that institutional integrity has been eroded in one or more of a set of relevant dimensions. However, the main part of this paper explores the ways in which institutional corruption exists in taxation institutions. The paper also begins the project of developing strategies for addressing the institutional corruption that the analysis exposes, clarifies some of the many agents whose participation is required to address the issues, and outlines the principles that could be used to assign responsibilities to relevant stakeholders in determining what various agents ought to do to combat fiscal institutional corruption.

  • Obstructions for the Graphs of Vertex Cover Seven

    Dinneen, Michael; Versteegen, Ralph (2012-12)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    In this paper we present an optimized procedure for computing the minor-order obstructions for graphs of vertex cover at most $k$. This extends the earlier method and results of Cattell and Dinneen in 1994, for $k \leq 5$. Here we extended the known set of forbidden graphs for $k \leq 7$. To help reduce the size of these sets, we also mention some proposals for finding minimal forbidden graphs for other ``stronger'' graph partial orders such as the $Y$-$\Delta$ and $H$-bowtie orders. We briefly mention our plans to incorporate these new features within our distributed computational framework (aka, VACS) for computing obstruction within the universe of bounded pathwidth and treewidth.

  • Ka Awatea: An iwi case study of Māori students' success

    Macfarlane, A; Webber, Melinda; McRae, H; Cookson-Cox, C (2014-03-31)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    This Ngā Pae o te Māramatanga project incorporates most of the secondary schools and wharekura within the Rotorua school zone. From the literature, data gathered, and the matching and discussion of this information; the research team’s aim is that educators, parents and whānau will better understand the nature of teaching, learning and home socialisation patterns that support Māori student success. Interviews, focus group discussions and surveys involving successful Māori students, their whānau, teachers and principals will enable examination of the multiplicity of factors that support Māori student achievement. The findings will be disseminated widely to offer examples of student, whānau, teaching and school practices that support Māori educational success. This project builds on a pilot project with a Rotorua secondary school already successfully undertaken by the research team.

  • A Bibliometric Study of Geothermal Research in New Zealand prepared for Mighty River Power

    Dhondi, S; O'Neale, DR; Hendy, Shaun (2011-07-14)

    Report
    The University of Auckland Library

    We conduct a bibliometric study of geothermal research in New Zealand, examining total published output, co-author relationships, and international collaboration. We identify a number of trends in the volume of outputs published and in co-author networks. We observe an increasingly connected geothermal community, with a growing number of new players and a decline in the dominance of countries such as the United States, the traditional leader in geothermal research.
