Kiwi Values: is the political landscape shifting?

Kiwi Values: is the political landscape shifting? 5th May - AKL

When a rich body of data becomes accessible it is not just the academics who become interested. There is food for thought here for everyone. We now have a good deal of recent survey data and analysis on ‘Kiwi values’. It gives us the basis to explore a whole range of questions:

• What are the values Kiwis purport to hold?

• What do those values suggest Kiwis want in their world?

• Are there different ‘pools’ in the values such that there is a diversity of preferences?

• Is it possible to call any range of value positions different identities or views of the world?

And to the progressive and curious these lead to further questions:

• Can these values impact voting patterns?

• So what are the demographic features of the values and the voters likely to look like?

• Are values changing over time; as we age, per region, by ethnicity, gender, migrant status?

• Are new values/identities emerging?

• Are some values/identities declining?

• What are the chances a Trump or a Bernie constituency could be found in New Zealand?

• Is there a link somehow between personal values and house price values???

We can have a go at this. Fabians Auckland is pleased to have Professor Charles Crothers to take us through a discussion on these queries. He has the data and the background as a sociologist and commentator to explore the material and open up the content for debate. We are pleased to have a session that will take us here.

As always, it would be helpful if you register for this Auckland event here.
