Tuesday July 28, 2015
Bronwyn Hayward, Department of Political Science , University of Canterbury
By the middle of this century, 7 in 10 people will live in a city. Cities are already large global actors, destinations, and trade centres in their own right. It is no coincidence that cities gave birth to our first ideas of democracy and in this public lecture, Assc Prof Bronwyn Hayward discusses why cities and their citizens sites will define the politics of this, the century of the city. You are welcome to join this lecture with UC class Politics 216, New Zealand city politics and local government.
An open lecture from POLS 216 – Urban Politics and Policy in Practice, presented by the Department of Political Science, University of Canterbury. Bronwyn Hayward is Head of Department of Political Science at UC, her New Zealand and international research focuses on democracy in times of change, with a particular emphasis on youth, urbanization and environmental change.
