Anti-establishment sentiment has been an increasingly more relevant and contentious topic around the world, especially going into this year’s general election in New Zealand. An academic keenly interested in this topic is Grant Duncan from Massey University, who will be giving a public lecture about it tomorrow night. Producer Will Parsonson speaks to Grant about recent global political events and what the potential impact might be on New Zealand, first asking him about the changing landscape of international democracies.
If you’re interested in heading along to Grant’s free lecture tomorrow night called ‘Trust, distrust and the end of politics as we knew it’, register here. The lecture runs from 6:00-7:30 in the Atrium Building Round Room on Massey University's Albany campus.
