I have been a regular advisor and speaker in various government departments, NZ Police, civil society groups (United Nations Association of New Zealand and New Zealand Institute of International Affairs), NGOs and national and international media. Due to my diverse activities and involvement with government and non-government organisations, I work with various academic units in Massey and Victoria as well as Waikato University and have extensive connection with NZDF, NZ Police, DPMC, MPI, MBI, Ministry of Justice and NZ Parliament. I have been involved in civil society programs for empowering individuals and have been an advocate for the rights of those who have been discriminated against in their communities or in intercultural societies.
