Old Government Buildings LT3

What did the mosque attacks do to New Zealanders’ trust in each other? Simon Chapple lays out the findings of a survey we ran in the aftermath of the shootings.

What did the mosque attacks do to New Zealanders’ trust in each other? Are some religious groups less trusted than others? How do we feel about gun owners in the wake of the attacks? How do gun owners feel about gun owners in the wake of the attacks?

The annual IGPS-Colmar Brunton trust survey had just been concluded when New Zealand was shaken by the events of March 15. It occurred to us that if we had run the survey just after the attacks instead of just before, our results might have been significantly different. We decided to find out.

In this free lunchtime event, IGPS director Simon Chapple lays out our findings: the before, the after, and the results of some new questions we added to look at trust in religious groups, ethnic groups… and people with guns.
