This keynote presentation will examine the trail of events and accidents that led to the sudden decision by British officials in 1839 that a treaty would be needed for New Zealand. It will then follow the incidents right up until the morning of the signing, and from there, will explore the mechanics of how the Treaty was violated and ignored, and uncover precisely what made this possible.
