THINK TALK: A Superdiverse Auckland. Immigration and the New Demography of Auckland
With Professor Paul Spoonely, Tuesday 31 May 2016 7.30 - 8.30pm
For much of its colonial history, immigrant arrivals to Auckland were dominated by those from the UK and Ireland, with modest numbers from other origins. This changed dramatically in the 1960s with migration flows from elsewhere in the Pacific, and has changed again (dramatically) in the 1990s with the significant increase of arrivals from various parts of Asia. It is now an incredibly diverse city, one of the most diverse in the OECD. This has implications for just about everything, from food and education, to who plays what sports, political engagement (or disengagement), housing and consumption. This talk will outline the demographic changes that have – and will – occur and explore some of the implications for Auckland.
