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.

Crowdsale And Crowdfunding Campaign: Help Create The Future Of Independent News

Two weeks to go! The Scoop 3.0 plan aims to create NZ’s first community-owned, distributed news and media intelligence ecosystem in 2019. We believe this ScoopPro media monetisation approach can be scaled and spread globally to support local and independent news efforts in regional New Zealand and around the world.

Scoop is an ecosystem, it would not exist without those who contribute to it, read it and rely on it for professional media purposes. Generous past support from this ecosystem has enabled us to come this far in developing our business model. Support our PledgeMe Campaign>>
