According to the 2013 Census, New Zealand has more ethnicities than there are countries in the world. We're a country made up of European, Māori, Chinese, Indian, Samoan, Filipino (and many more) ethnic groups. Many of us think New Zealand has a great quality of life, but how do our migrants feel? What are the benefits of belonging to a nation made up of so many different ethnicities?

Hosted by comedian and columnist Raybon Kan, this panel discussion features researchers, migrants and social experts – including diversity acceptance advocate Anjum Rahman, indigenous population expert Dr Tahu Kukutai, and Māori issues expert Dr Leonie Pihama.

Held as part of the University of Waikato's Winter Lecture Series, the series brings together experts and advocates from around the region to spark debate and discussion, while talking about issues that affect us all.

All lectures are free and open to the public and run every Wednesday in August.
