How Healthy is New Zealand’s Democracy? Assessing the state of politics in election year (U3A)


Event Details


New Zealand is often rated one of the most democratic countries, but our political system doesn’t always work for everyone or deal effectively with important problems. Voter turnout is declining, and fewer people trust politicians. What solutions might there be?

Dr Bryce Edwards has taught at the University of Otago for the past 10 years with particular interest in NZ political parties. He is a frequent commentator on elections and politics.

Presented by U3A. $5 admission.
