Inequality in New Zealand: what’s to be done?

Date: 3 August 2017, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Venue: Massey University Auckland, Albany, The Round Room
Speakers: Professor Darrin Hodgetts, Professor Stuart Carr and Professor Kerry Chamberlain

Inequalities are increasing in Western countries, and New Zealand is no exception. The days when New Zealand was a leader in social initiatives have long passed, and we are now experiencing major divisions between sectors of our society, with many New Zealanders living in impoverished and precarious conditions, related to their work, income, housing, health, and poverty of opportunity.

This panel discussion addresses these issues and offers a discussion around how we might enable a more equitable, just and fair society, seeking to enhance the wellbeing and citizenship of our people.
