Simon Draper: Why North Korea matters to New Zealanders
OPINION: In previous columns, I've talked about how our research shows that while most New Zealanders view Asia as important to New Zealand's future, two-thirds of us say we know little or nothing about the region. Our Perceptions of Asia survey also tells us that much of what New Zealanders do know about Asia comes from the media. The other key way we learn about the region is through personal interactions â?? which is easy enough to achieve if you're attending school or working in a large office in "super-diverse" Auckland, but more challenging if you're living in a small community. Over the past two decades, the survey has identified strong links between media coverage and the public's understanding of Asia â?? and their feelings about the region. Take 2013, when media coverage of the Fonterra "botulism scare" saw New Zealanders' recall of Asia-related business and economic issues nearly double from the previous year.
