The SHORE and Whāriki Research Centre is part of the College of Health at Massey University.
Social and Health Outcomes Research and Evaluation (SHORE) and Te Rōpū Whāriki (Whāriki) are multi-disciplinary research groups undertaking policy and community research and evaluation on
a variety of health and social topics. They were established at Massey University in June 2002.
SHORE & Whāriki recognise an ongoing process of realising a research partnership. The challenges
of realising a partnership within a university require dialogue, reflection and negotiation based on
a commitment to partnership and to meeting the obligations of the Treaty of Waitangi. Rising to
the challenges of maintaining a partnership has created a unique research environment that is a key strength of both SHORE and Whāriki.
Research and evaluation carried out by SHORE & Whāriki has been funded by numerous sources including the Health Research Council of New Zealand, Ministry of Health, the World Health Organization, Ministry of Social Development, Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, Marsden Fund, Building Research Capacity in the Social Sciences, Health Promotion Agency,
New Zealand Police, Auckland Council and the ASB Trust.
