The New Zealand Institute of International Affairs is an independent non-government organisation which seeks to promote discussion and understanding of international issues that affect New Zealand. It is not a pressure group: it is a forum for discussion.
As a charitable trust, it is committed to impartiality: it does not advocate specific policies. It does try to help New Zealanders understand the increasingly complex international scene, and its implications for New Zealand.
Founded in 1934, the Institute has long attracted people who have played an important part in making our foreign policy. Recent speakers at the NZIIA Annual Dinner have included the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, as well as the Governor-General.
The Institute publishes, six times a year, the New Zealand International Review. It is the only periodical in New Zealand devoted entirely to international affairs. Each member of the Institute receives a copy of every issue at a concessional price.
