Debating "Dirty Politics": Media, Politics and Law

The University of Otago is going to debate "Dirty Politics" Nicky Hager's last book.

Are we in an era where politics is dirtier than the past, or are we simply more fixated on claims of scandal? How have changes in media, and the rise of social media in particular, impacted on the way politics is pursued?
When is it allowable to intrude upon individuals' rights to privacy for the greater good of public debate?
These are some of the issues that will be discussed in this debate.
