Raising the Bar is back for a third round! The University of Auckland is proud to once again host this unique event in which our academics give free public lectures in pubs and bars.

Join Tim Kuhner for You Know My Country’s Corrupt, But What About Yours?

Donald Trump has made corruption in the United States more famous than ever. But American democracy was downright rotten before Trump, and this talk will explain why that is – and why New Zealanders should care.

It turns out that, despite its reputation as one of the least corrupt countries, New Zealand has serious vulnerabilities to government of, by, and for the wealthy.

Tim will explain why that is and why, if you don’t already care about this, you should!
Corruption, plutocracy, and kleptocracy will all be household names after this talk. And yet, it won’t be a total downer — it turns out that there are ample reasons for hope.

Registrations essential.
