The inclusion of The Treaty of Waitangi in the development of the NZASW's Code of Ethics, where the significance of the Maori point of view is to be negotiated in relation to a Pakeha point of view, is evidence of the possibility of: a partnership in which irresolvable different Maori and Pakeha conceptions of justice are to find a voice, and in -which a shared conception of justice must represent, not a rational consensus, but some kind of negotiated compromise in relation to these different conceptions of justice.
In addition to this incorporation of difference, the NZASW'S Code of Ethics clearly commits itself to the radical notion of social justice.
The NZASW, in accommodating positional difference of the Maori, illustrates that in attaining social justice for oppressed groups and individuals a pragmatic wisdom is feasible.
