Dominic O’Sullivan

Dominic is a Professor of Political Science. His work encompasses the disciplines of political science, education and public theology with indigeneity providing a unifying scholarly theme. His work examines relationships among liberal democracy, citizenship, public sovereignty, and indigenous self-determination in New Zealand and internationally. His original application of a liberal theory of indigeneity to policy questions of health, education, local government, and economic growth is the first systematic attempt to explain liberal democracy’s potential for culturally framed indigenous democratic citizenship – an innovative and profoundly important blending of Western and indigenous political theories.
