The New Zealand Initiative

Wellington, New Zealand

The New Zealand Initiative’s mission is to help create a competitive, open and dynamic economy and a free, prosperous, fair, and cohesive society. As New Zealand’s leading think tank, they work closely with their members, policymakers across the political spectrum, the wider business community, the media, academics and the general public. Their researchers conduct independent research on a wide range of policy issues. From education to economic policy, from poverty to housing, and from local government to immigration, they are injecting new ideas into New Zealand's political debates. They are non-partisan and welcome an open exchange of views and ideas. The results of their research are freely available to the public.
