Aotea Centre
The current debate around immigration and ethnic diversity is complex. Auckland has now reached superdiverse status, with 40 percent of its population overseas-born. The consequences of this phenomenon are evident as both immigrants and those born locally navigate a rapidly changing environment. The debate is also, at times, divisive. On the one hand, immigration benefits the local economy and immigrants are embraced for their social and cultural contributions. On the other hand, immigrants are often blamed for the challenges facing Auckland: the city’s inflated house prices and pressures on the city’s natural resources and infrastructure, for example. With the backdrop of Trump and Brexit, ethnic diversity and immigration will be major issues in the upcoming 2017 election. This event will provide the opportunity for Aucklanders to ask some hard questions about the implications of ethnic diversity and immigration for the future of our city. Panellists: Bev Cassidy-Mackenzie; Precious Clark; Jenny Lim; Paul Spoonley; and Borni Te Rongopai Tukiwaho.
