“Kei te mihi ahau ki ngā taonga katoa o ngā tangata whenua o Aotearoa New Zealand. I am pleased to honour all of the treasures of the indigenous peoples of Aotearoa New Zealand.
As RSA Ambassador for New Zealand, I am pleased to help anyone wanting more information or to make connections in regional studies. The mission of the University centre where I work is to exercise leadership in research for sustainable wellbeing. Regional studies is a field where businesses, community organisations, regional development practitioners, government advisors and academic scholars working collaboratively can have a strong impact on the wellbeing of large numbers of people. The Regional Studies Association has a proud record of impact, and I am honoured to be a member of its global network of regional Ambassadors.
Kia ora tātou katoa, may all of us enjoy wellbeing.”
Paul’s latest book is Wellbeing Economics: The Capabilities Approach to Prosperity, published in September 2018 as an Open Access Pivot by Palgrave Macmillan which you can download by clicking here. This free eBook shows why it is important to put wellbeing firmly in the forefront of economic and social policy, and how that will translate into better lives. In the first two months of publication there were 10,185 chapter downloads making it the most downloaded Palgrave Pivot book published in 2018. In New Zealand and around the world, a lot of important work is being done to implement wellbeing economics in public policy. The three authors of Wellbeing Economics: The Capabilities Approach to Prosperity (Paul Dalziel, Caroline Saunders and Joe Saunders) are pleased to be part of the wider research community supporting that work.
