    Security News: Peters Talks Tough On Terrorism

    New Zealand welcomes the consensus on extending the mandate of the Counter Terrorism Task Force (CTTF) for a further two years. It is clear that the threat posed by terrorists to security, stability and prosperity in the APEC region has not abated. Given the number of counter-terrorism initiatives currently under consideration, it is equally clear that the CTTF continues to have a solid agenda in front of it. See... NZ statement on APEC's counter-terrorism work [1]

    Election Promises: Nats Claim Free Childcare Won't Come

Nationwide, 40% of early childhood providers do not expect to offer the service. See... The great early childhood hoax [1]

    Digital: E-Government Strategy Promises Digitisation Nation

    State Services Minister Annette King has launched the 2006 E-Government Strategy saying e-government is not just about technology, but about putting people first. "It is about making government work for New Zealanders," she says. The first E-government Strategy was released in April 2001. The latest version is the fourth version of the Strategy, and is called Enabling Transformation. See... E-Government Strategy Released [1]

    Environment: Parker Addresses Climate Change Convention

    I bring greetings from New Zealand and thank you and your Government for hosting us here in Nairobi.

    Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
    The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters. Because governments come and governments go – about every six to seven years on average since 1945 – getting too focused on their long-term fiscal aspirations is often pointless... More>>

    Keith Rankin: Liberal Democracy In The New Neonationalist Era: The Three 'O's
    The proposed ‘New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme’ (‘the scheme’) has attracted strong debate among the more left-wing and liberal groupings, within New Zealand-Aotearoa. This debate should be seen as a positive rather than negative tension because of the opportunity to consider and learn from the implications and sharpen advocacy... More>>

    Dunne Speaks: Words Matter, Prime Minister
    Words matter, especially when uttered by politicians. History is littered with examples of careless or injudicious words uttered by politicians coming back to haunt them, often at the most awkward of times. During the 1987 election campaign, when electoral reform was a hot issue, Prime Minister David Lange promised to have a referendum on the electoral system... More>>


    Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
    Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


    Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
    The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




    The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

    As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
