The clash between science and silence

Apr 13, 2019

Lincoln University was silenced for over two months due to a clause in a research contract with South Island iwi Ngāi Tahu which forced it to seek written permission before speaking publicly. See the Newsroom article.

Our Executive Director, John McDermott, commented about the need for research to have integrity. All of Motu's contracts include a clause that states that the findings from research by Motu staff will be published.
