In 2015, the World Migration Report identified Auckland as the fourth most diverse city in the world – what does that really mean? In the post-war era, the first major non-European migration occurred from the 1950s with the arrival of migrants from the Pacific. Auckland has, for some time, laid claim to being home to the largest global concentration of Polynesians.

Changes to immigration policy in the late 1980s have further shaped Auckland’s diversity in two distinct ways – by connecting the city to Asia via recent migration flows, and by contributing to the ‘diversification of diversity’. Demographer Paul Spoonley explores the implications of immigrant-related diversity – ethno-burbs, ethnic precincts, culture and practice (food, sports, arts) and the implications for the future.

Doors open at 6pm.
Free parking onsite.
