The IGPS makes expert public policy research accessible to the New Zealand public via regular debates, book launches, lectures and other events.

One of our charter objectives is to engage with the community through regular workshops and public seminars and presentations, so we can raise the quality of debate around important issues and encourage public participation in the policy making process.
