Max Harris: Reclaiming an Independent Foreign Policy 31 May
Max Harris - Reclaiming an Independent Foreign Policy
31 May - AKL
New Zealand has drifted from its commitment to independent foreign policy in recent years. This talk explains that recent history - and sets out the elements of an effective, independent foreign policy. It then makes some practical suggestions about new directions for New Zealand foreign policy. The overall aim is to emphasise that a values-based vision for New Zealand's place in the world is a key part of a progressive agenda for government.
