Today on the Monday Wire, it's a very justice-themed Wire, as we look back on same of our favourite interviews from the year. First up, previous Monday Wire Host Jemima's interview with Green Party co-leader James Shaw on the Green Party's media controversies and how politicians and political parties use social media. 

Then, former Monday Producer Lachlan's two best interviews: Chief Ombudsman Peter Bosher on conditions at Ngāwhā Prison and Ivana Millnarc, author of children's book "Stardust", aimed at children whose parents are incarcerated.

Current Monday Producers Deb and Louis look back on their favourite pieces: Louis speaking to Economist Shamubeel Eaqub, who explained the 2019 Government Budget, and Deb chatting with former prisoner (and 'jailhouse lawyer') Arthur Taylor about prisoner voting rights.

Lastly, Sherry shares her interview with refugee advocate and survivor Behrouz Boochani about his book 'no friend by the mountain' and Australia's refugee policies. We ran out of time to play it, but Jemima's favourite piece is with AUT Law Professor Khylee Quince about Te Uepū Hāpai i te Ora, the Safe and Effective Justice Advisory Group's report 'He Waka Roimata' on the Criminal Justice system.  

Tune in for the last Monday wire of 2019! We'll be back next year to welcome in the new decade!

A recent report suggests that agencies designed to aid Maori women in unsafe relationships can actually contribute to further entrapment as Maori women report often feeling alienated and discriminated against while trying to access care. 

In New Zealand, partner violence is estimated to affect one in three women while for Maori Women the prevalence could be as high as 80 percent. 

Director of the Taupua Waiora Centre for Māori Health Research, Denise Wilson conducted a report studying the processes and strategies Maori women use to keep themselves safe in unsafe partner relationships. 

She spoke with 28 wahine Maori hearing about their personal experiences surviving domestic violence and reaching out to systems that are intended to help them find some level of safety. 

Laura Kvigstad speaks with Denise Wilson on her research, delving into what the barriers are for Maori Women in accessing the services they need to get out of unsafe relationships.
