What we do
Victoria works with government, the judiciary and others to provide independent policy thinking—watch the video from theme chair Professor Mark Hickford.
Advancing better government
We have strong relationships with the public sector, business and the diplomatic community while retaining the independence to engage critically in a non-partisan way.
Victoria University’s capability in advancing better government positions it to be the pre-eminent centre for expertise, insight and engagement in the legislative and regulatory systems to protect the interests of the future.
We play a unique role by aiding interaction between world-class scholars, dynamic business communities and the three branches of Government—executive, legislative and judicial.
Our capability is world-class and multidisciplinary—there is a breadth of expertise drawn from many areas across the University—across research, teaching and engagement.
Victoria is New Zealand's leading research centre for policy, governance, law, working with government and business on national and global issues.
