A new politics for New Zealand

Publication cover The New Zealand Project

The New Zealand Project
Max Harris (2017)

‘A New Politics for New Zealand’ is the title of the Michael King Memorial Lecture 2017 presented by Max Harris, author of The New Zealand Project, through New Zealand.

His book has sparked debate on a vision for deepening New Zealand’s political discussion, starting conversations, and confronting the challenges ahead including climate change, the future of work and social justice. He argues that academics and intellectuals have failed to deepen the political discourse, that politics is dominated by pragmatism, and that technocratic policies have replaced value-based ones.

Forthcoming presentations in July and August include Wellington, Auckland, Carterton, Hastings, Gisborne, Nelson and Paekakariki – details at http://bwb.co.nz/news/events.
