  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - The 'beautiful island' speaks
    • Abstract: Vogel, Stuart
      The significance of the recent elections for the president and Legislative Yuan in Taiwan was lost on the New Zealand media. Taiwan has undergone a peaceful transition from dictatorship to an effective democracy. Taiwan is a stable trading partner and the Taiwanese community is an important sector in the New Zealand population. The cooling of the Chinese economy has meant that diversification and expansion of economic relationships are common interests, as is the need the strengthening of international law for peaceful resolution of territorial claims. The tangata whenua of Aotearoa/New Zealand are related to some of the indigenous tribes of Taiwan. The development of the relationships of our indigenous peoples is vital for their self-identity.

  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - ANZUS: 'Our richest prize' or 'that scrap of
           paper'?
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Maybe 2016 will prompt a 'high noon' moment for the old ANZUS triangle between the United States, Australia and New Zealand which dominated New Zealand's approach to national security for four decades. Several episodes illustrate a search that has been nearly as elusive as that for Lewis Carroll's Snark - New Zealand's 'comfortable relationship' with Washington. Victoria University of Wellington history professor Fred Wood's impressive scholarship was important in framing the relationship intellectually, as was Secretary of Foreign Affairs Frank Corner's adroit diplomacy. Norman Kirk's, David Lange's and Helen Clark's prime ministerial diplomacy with the United States played a significant role in the evolution of the relationship.

  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - CHOGM 2015: The invisible summit holds out promise for
           rejuvenation
    • Abstract: McIntyre, WDavid
      Although overshadowed by global crises, the 2015 Valletta Chogm saw some innovations that augur well for the future. The 'Parallel Meetings' of the voluntary and business Commonwealths included a new Women's Forum. Llesbian, gay, bisexual, trans- and inter-sexual issues were raised for the first time. Prince Charles advocated a green finance facility for islands states. The first UK secretary-general was elected in the person of Dominican-born Baroness Scotland, who was the first women UK attorney-general. Britain will contribute to a new unit in the Secretariat to counter extremists' radicalisation and will host the next Chogm in 2018, its first for 21 years.

  • Volume 41 Issue 2 - Strategic liberalism and Kiwi maximalism
    • Abstract: Steff, Reuben
      In recent decades a new international structure has emerged, dramatically increasing the incentives for co-operation. New Zealand should capitalise on this by adopting a new foreign policy paradigm. It should consider a new approach - strategic liberalism - as the foundational underpinning of New Zealand's foreign policy. Bonded to 'Kiwi maximalism', it would provide a wellspring for visionary objectives that New Zealand could adopt. It might aim to transcend major regional security issues through a reinvigorated push for disarmament across the Asia-Pacific region and by acting as a catalyst for improved United States-China relations.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - Indonesia's new maritime focus
    • Abstract: Chandramohan, Balaji
      Indonesia occupies a key geo-strategic position. It straddles the confluence of two important regions - the Indian and the South-west Pacific. Important sea lanes run through or near its territory, including in particular the Strait of Malacca. Indonesia's position and aspirations are encouraging a maritime approach to security, one that differs from its previous inward-looking security focus. It has released a new maritime doctrine and begun steps to modernise and increase the Indonesian Navy. A 'green-water' blueprint envisages a 274-ship navy by 2024. This is Indonesia's largest naval modernisation plan in more than 40 years and it will substantially increase the country's profile in the Indo-Pacific region.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - Rescuing Boko Haram's schoolgirl victims
    • Abstract: Oyewole, Samuel
      The Islamist Boko Haram insurgency in Nigeria has emerged as a source of much international security concern in recent times. In the last six years it has been responsible for a series of terrorist attacks and atrocities in Nigeria and its neighbours in the Lake Chad region. The group became globally unpopular following the abduction of 276 schoolgirls from a secondary school in the north-eastern Nigerian town of Chibok on 14 April 2014. The response of the Nigerian government and its international partners has been criticised for its failure to rescue the abducted girls over the last eighteen months.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - Making trans-Pacific friends
    • Abstract: Jacobi, Stephen
      The recent agreement on the Trans-Pacific Partnership in Atlanta has opened up new trade vistas for New Zealand. The TPP appears poised to deliver the free trade relationship we have sought for so long. This momentous development has implications for our trade relationship with China, which is not in the TPP. But in the light of the reality of these global business networks it does not make sense to suggest that it will force New Zealand to make some sort of choice between China and the United States. Rather, business in New Zealand seeks the best possible environment for doing business with both partners.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - Should war define New Zealand's self-view?
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Terence
      New Zealand's sense of place in the world has for a century or more been influenced through intermittent experiences of distant warfare. It derived from colonial inheritance and a sense of separation from pakeha cultural roots, which drove a psychology of dependency and an enduring concern to demonstrate that, despite geography, New Zealand remained a reliable, dependable partisan of Atlantic/European values and interests. New Zealand's self-view in the future is perhaps less likely to be influenced by war as such than by perceived threat of insecurity and by fundamental shifts to the tectonic plates below the international landscape.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - An English tea party?
    • Abstract: Ricketts, Rita
      The unexpected election of the maverick MP Jeremy Corbyn as leader of the British Labour Party has had a dramatic impact on British politics. He himself described it as a 'political earthquake'. It is possible that his advent will have almost revolutionary consequences. His populist approach, and his fierce opposition to the establishment policies on defence, has put him on course for a confrontation with the military industrial elite. His thinking on many issues, and his record of Robin Hood-like support for his constituents, brings to mind former New Zealand Labour prime minister David Lange, who faced similar challenges in driving New Zealand's anti-nuclear policy.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - David Lange's French connection - mais qui?
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Lange's exposure of French culpability in the bombing of the Rainbow Warrior, his firm advocacy for the French South Pacific territory of New Caledonia to become the independent Kanaky and his being at the forefront of international opposition to French nuclear testing at Moruroa together present a major portfolio of global diplomacy by a New Zealand prime minister. New Caledonia was Lange's principal 'captain's call' in his global diplomacy. The bombing of the Rainbow Warrior is the most fascinating chapter in Lange's global diplomacy - more so than the ANZUS/nuclear free New Zealand saga.

  • Volume 41 Issue 1 - A tale with many dimensions
    • Abstract: Fu, Ying
      All three drivers of China's growth - investment, export and consumption - are slowing in various degrees. And new sources of growth are not strong enough to replace the traditional ones, which are declining. But a readjustment was to be expected. After 30 years, China has become the second largest economy, but it could not grow at a high rate indefinitely. Despite problems the prospects for the Chinese economy remain good. Overcoming continuing disparities in development provides an opportunity for maintaining growth, and the fundamentals of the economy are sound and resilient. Changed rules will make foreign investment in China more attractive.

  • Volume 40 Issue 6 - The upsides and downsides of the Iranian nuclear deal
    • Abstract: Patman, Robert G
      The nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group limits Iran's nuclear programme in return for the gradual removal of international economic sanctions against Teheran. While the deal significantly reduces an Iranian nuclear weapons threat, it has been condemned for simply stalling the danger at the cost of expanding the assets of a regionally assertive actor. However, the claim that a better multilateral deal with Iran was possible is not convincing. The Iran nuclear accord achieves the central goal of constraining Teheran's nuclear programmes and has the potential to facilitate a diplomatic dialogue on critical issues like Syria.

  • Volume 40 Issue 6 - Countering over-stretch
    • Abstract: Shlapentokh, Dmitry
      The agreement the United States and several other powers concluded with Iran recently has broad implications. It has nothing to do with saving the United States/Israel and the global community from 'insane' mullahs. It indicates that the United States has actually abandoned any idea of 'preventive' war with Iran, and further demonstrates changes in the United States' socio-economic posture and related military capacity, which will inevitably lead to the further erosion of the US 'empire'. This isolationist drive - structurally similar to that of the early post- Soviet Russia period - could have not just positive but also negative implications for the global community.

      The major theme of Barack Obama's presidency has been to diminish American commitments overseas and to re-make America's role. His policy has been to end the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, or rather, to end the American role in them, and famously then to 'pivot to Asia'. These represent the end of a swing in a pendulum. A swing back can now be anticipated. Military spending will increase under the next president, whoever that may be. Even before the presidential election in 2016 we will see a more aggressive US policy in the Middle East against ISIS, from a president who has greatly resisted this.

    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Norman Kirk's requiring the New Zealand Rugby Football Union to 'conditionally postpone' the 1973 Springbok tour of New Zealand is the superlative example of Kirk's Ernest Bevin-style attributes. Ensuring that the whites-only Springboks did not visit New Zealand was the defining moment that began his year of global diplomacy. He set the standard for New Zealand as a good international citizen. Kirk's skills in the lead up to the 10 April letter to the Rugby Union was that prime minister at his finest, enabling a controversial decision to come to pass that allowed him to strive for his big picture aspirations beyond New Zealand.

  • Volume 40 Issue 6 - Focusing on economic security
    • Abstract: Wood, Tim
      The 2015 Defence white paper is likely to maintain the status quo with regard to defence capabilities. Surprises are unlikely. In consideration of uncertainty in the dairy market, the effects of El Nino and rising tensions in the South China Sea, all of which have the potential to adversely affect the national security of New Zealand, should the white paper do more? Perspectives of trade, diplomacy and military capabilities suggest that in the absence of a comprehensive national security strategy, greater emphasis should be placed upon ensuring that the New Zealand Defence Force can deliver a significant contribution to the nation's economic security.

  • Volume 40 Issue 6 - Making a case for a defence U-turn
    • Abstract: Steadman, Hugh
      New Zealand should seek increased independence from the Western Alliance and pursue a defence policy that will allow it to rely for its defence on its own resources. In essence, this calls for autarchy in regard to essential commodities and for universal military service along Swiss lines, with no armed forces deployed overseas and the main land forces being trained to fight a guerrilla war. The extent of New Zealand's defence commitment to Australia should be questioned. Israel's situation and its ability to fund universal military service at a much higher level than would be required in New Zealand should be considered in the forthcoming white paper.

    • Abstract: Ayson, Robert
      In February New Zealand committed troops to a training role in Iraq. In announcing that decision Prime Minister John Key intimated that New Zealand stands up for its values and what is right. Values are the guiding aims we think will make for a good society, a life worth living, and can often be connected to what we regard as moral or ethical conduct. It is unlikely, however, that the claim that we are standing up for our values provides a fulsome explanation of why New Zealand decided to send forces overseas. Most such decisions have multiple factors behind them.

    • Abstract: Gottemoeller, Rose
      Since 1969 the Non-proliferation Treaty has been a key instrument in stemming the tide of nuclear proliferation. It has facilitated co-operation among its signatories, and has institutionalised the norms of non-proliferation and disarmament. The three pillars of the treaty, which provide its stability and are responsible for its endurance, are the commitment by nuclear weapons states to pursue disarmament and by non-nuclear weapons states to abstain from the pursuit of nuclear weapons and the right of all countries to access the benefits of peaceful nuclear energy. The United States and New Zealand have always been strong supporters of this regime.

      Kirk's 'OE' was crucial to his readiness to be our most impressive prime minister since 1945, at least for global diplomacy. South-east Asia, London and Washington were his prime destinations for his 'OE'. Singapore's Lee Kuan Yew was his principal mentor. Harold Wilson, his friend, was the model for his being a problem-solving prime minister. Kirk's fascination with South-east Asia meant that he was a pivotal player for enabling New Zealand to draw close to ASEAN soon after his death. Even as far back as 1962 he wove his South-east Asia into his conversations and talks in the United States.

    • Abstract: James, Colin
      The world is in a disorderly phase. This is driven in part by geo-political and geo-economic events, including the mass movement of people, and in part by disruptive technological change that is fragmenting and dispersing power, eroding the sovereignty of individual nation-states and beginning to turn us from citizens of nations into global citizens. This multi-generational transition is likely over time to require a range of informal and semi-formal supra-national governance arrangements. A role for New Zealand, as a disinterested global country-citizen, could be to suggest prototypes of such arrangements, starting in the South Pacific.

Its success in achieving election against strong competition stemmed from the priority that the government placed on its candidacy, the well-organised campaign that secured the votes of 75 per cent of the organisation's members and the reputation which New Zealand has long enjoyed as an engaged and constructive and creative participant in international affairs. In New York New Zealand aims to make a positive difference to the work of council, both in its approach to issues and its methods. It hopes to further enhance its international standing.

      Any examination of Europe poses difficult questions. Even if its geographical bounds can be determined - its geographic centre is probably in Poland - it remains difficult to explain what it represents. Membership of the European Union is one defining characteristic, at least for part of the continent. There are currently 28 members. According to the union's Copenhagen Declaration, this membership requires a stable democracy that respects human rights and the rule of law, a functioning market economy and the acceptance of the obligations of membership, including EU law. These requirements represent a barrier to any closer relationship between Russia and the union.

      The link between New Zealand men in uniform and Israel goes back a long way. The first contacts took place during the First World War, many years before Israel became a state. At Gallipoli, Zionist volunteers served alongside Anzac troops. New Zealand mounted riflemen fought the Ottomans in the dunes of the Holy Land near Nes Ziona and Rishon LeZion in the Judean plain and around Beersheba, liberating what today is Israel from the Ottoman Empire. New Zealand and Jewish soldiers fought alongside each other in Greece, North Africa and Italy, and were held in the same prisoner of war camps in German-occupied territory.

      Brunei Darussalam's relationship with New Zealand is very close, both bilaterally and through the ASEAN process. Within ASEAN, it began in July 1985 when Brunei Darussalam, shortly after joining the association, became a country co-ordinator for ASEAN - New Zealand dialogue relations, a three-year role. Politically, the two countries' leaders, ministers and senior officials have established warm friendship and good contacts. Economically, New Zealand is one of Brunei Darussalam important trading partners. On the multilateral level Brunei Darussalam values New Zealand's interest and participation in ASEAN affairs, which have been substantial in the last 40 years and are still very strong.

    • Abstract: Pongsudhirak, Thitina
      ASEAN is Asia's most durable regional organisation. In fact, it is the most successful unnatural regional organisation of large size in contemporary world history. ASEAN is attempting to do something no other regional organisation has done - to promote integration without supra-nationality. This is a monumental task, and the recent summit indicated that ASEAN is increasingly challenged in its efforts to bind into the ASEAN Community by the end of 2015. Mainland South-east Asia is where real integration will take place in the immediate future. ASEAN's dialogue partners, such as New Zealand, should reframe their focus to take account of this development.

      New Zealand's relationship with Indonesia has its roots in the latter's independence struggle. New Zealand was one of the first countries to recognise the new republic on its proclamation in 1949. But the establishment of diplomatic ties was long delayed, New Zealand not upgrading its representation in Jakarta until 1968. But the relationship remained relatively shallow, not helped by New Zealand's active participation in operations in opposition to Indonesia's konfrontasi with Malaysia in the 1960s and later differences over East Timor issues. Today there are good and growing trade relations, while co-operation in other fields, especially tourism and education, is increasing.

      With two-thirds of New Zealand's trade and investment now occurring in the Asia - Pacific region, New Zealand can be expected to look for increasing opportunities in the ASEAN area in future. Its longstanding relationship with ASEAN, dating back to 1975, will stand it in good stead. The ASEAN - Australia - New Zealand Free Trade Agreement, which came into force in 2010, gives New Zealand exporters many possible advantages, especially as tariffs are progressively eliminated to priority markets. One of those markets is Vietnam, with which New Zealand's trade has increased four-fold in the last five years. A collaborative approach will bring many benefits.

      New Zealand has had a long and fruitful relationship with ASEAN. Its ties with Myanmar were limited until recently, for it consistently supported UN-mandated sanctions against Myanmar and hesitated to engage. But relations have warmed more recently, reflected in a series of high- level visits to both countries. This development stands alongside New Zealand's efforts to achieve closer ties with ASEAN. Earlier this year it proposed upgrading the existing comprehensive partnership into a strategic partnership. This idea was discussed at the 22nd ASEAN - New Zealand dialogue in Auckland and efforts are now in train to create a plan of action to achieve this goal.

      The ASEAN Regional Forum plays an important role in helping create a more predictable and stable pattern of relationships between major powers and South-east Asia. Established in 1994, and now boasting a membership of 27 states, it has the objective of facilitating open dialogue and constructive discussions on political and security issues that were of concern to all member states, as well as a contribution to confidence-building and preventive diplomacy in the Asia - Pacific region. But to continue to be relevant the ARF needs to transform itself into a problem-solving institution. It should initiate concrete and practical activities and programmes to strengthen regional co-operative security.

      In the 40 years that New Zealand has been a dialogue partner of ASEAN, South-east Asia has undergone a remarkable transformation. From a region preoccupied with security concerns and economically weak, it has become an economic powerhouse. ASEAN, now expanded to ten members, has emerged from an uncertain beginning to become an increasingly confident and valuable regional organisation. The celebrations planned in 2015 to mark the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the dialogue provide the perfect opportunity to once again highlight the importance of the New Zealand - ASEAN relationship and to commit to strengthen it further in the next decade.

      New Zealand's commitment to the security and stability of South-east Asia dates back to 1949 with an initial RNZAF deployment to the region. Its defence relations with ASEAN developed through participation in the ASEAN Regional Forum, which was formed in 1994. New Zealand is also an active participant in the recently formed ASEAN Defence Ministers Plus forum. This aims to build and sustain confidence between the region's military and civilian defence officials through developing habits of co-operation in tackling non-traditional security issues. The evolution of the ASEAN community in the years ahead should offer opportunities for New Zealand to further strengthen its relations in the defence field.

      Although New Zealand was one of the first nations, together with Australia and Japan, to embrace ASEAN as a partner when it became ASEAN's dialogue partner in 1975, economic relations between New Zealand and her ASEAN partners can best be described as lukewarm. New Zealand has yet to make a real impression on the ASEAN economic wave. New Zealand has made good progress on the diplomatic front in the past ten years, setting the stage for closer economic cooperation with ASEAN. However, New Zealand is still far behind in terms of actual economic engagement. New Zealand businesses have yet to lose their fear of going abroad into the region.

      Recent economic, security and strategic moves by China, Russia and Japan, great powers in North-east Asia, are part of a long process of positioning themselves with or against one another in efforts to further their own hopes and ambitions in the region. The pace of the adjustments has picked up, and cannot fail to influence the US - China relationship, which will be the ultimate factor determining whether we have peace in East Asia and the Pacific. The sobering conclusion of an assessment of the relationships among the great powers of Asia and of the United States itself is that none of them has a grand vision of how they could all exist in peace.

      While the European Union was established in 1993 (the European Economic Community began in 1958), its ultimate structure is still not settled, as illustrated by the lack of integration of its energy system and the incomplete nature of its monetary union. Progress to an ever more perfect union is limited by the desires of member states to maintain a maximum of sovereignty. The difficulties of moving forward have been highlighted by the monetary crisis that has enveloped Greece in recent years. This episode has demonstrated once again that the ever more perfect union involves member states giving up chunks of sovereignty.

These visits reflected the deepening ties between the two countries, as they confront the reality of China's rising power. India has the reach in both Eurasia and the wider Asia - Pacific region to become Washington's defining partner or even an ally in the new US strategic calculus. US support for India's admission to the global nuclear non-proliferation and export control regimes is a further reflection of warming US - India ties.

      The global strategic environment has changed in important ways in the five years since the least defence white paper in 2010.

However, events that occur much further afield increasingly have the potential to impact New Zealanders and New Zealand interests. While our security interests may have broadened, defence resources are not limitless. Work as part of this year's defence white paper will need to ensure we continue to strike the right balance between defence policy, military capability and funding.

      Takeshima and the Northern Territories are symbols of Japan's nationalism. While Tokyo's official position on the two disputes over their sovereignty has been consistent since the mid-1950s, its domestic policy related to the disputes experienced an important change. From the mid1960s, Tokyo began actively to utilise the Northern Territories dispute with the Soviet Union. By contrast, the dispute over Takeshima was put on the back burner of domestic politics as the government gave priority to co-operation with Seoul. This created a sense of victimhood in Shimane Prefecture, which by passing the 'Takeshima Day' ordinance in 2005 brought the territorial dispute to the fore of the domestic debates on Japan's relations with South Korea.

      The recent actions of the ISIS jihadists in Syria and Iraq has left not only the Middle East but also the global community shocked by the amount of violence. This raises the question of what type of ideology lies behind the tactics adopted by this violent organisation? A comparison of the recent jihadist phenomenon in Syria and Iraq with the Wahhabi movement of the 18th, 19th and early 20th centuries helps to explain the modern jihadists' behaviour. Wahhabism, as a doctrine, still constitutes a source of inspiration for a puritanical jihadist conflict. Its zero tolerance for 'Others' virtually ensures a high level of violence.

  • Volume 40 Issue 2 - New Zealand's jihadis
    • Abstract: Zelin, Aaron
      Unlike other Western nations New Zealand, historically, has not had an issue with its Muslim citizens going abroad and joining up in foreign conflicts with Sunni global jihadi groups or with homegrown activism. While the rate of participation remains comparatively low, as a result of the unprecedented flow of foreign fighters to and growth in the Islamic State in Syria and Iraq there are signs that some within New Zealand have been drawn to the fighting or are sympathetic with what is going on. The civil war in Syria has been instrumental in encouraging such involvement.

  • Volume 40 Issue 2 - New Zealand prime ministers - at the white house
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      New Zealand prime ministers have visited the White House 25 times. The first occasion was when Peter Fraser was there on 26 August 1941. Keith Holyoake went six times, meeting three presidents - Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon. Norman Kirk's September 1973 meeting with Nixon is the Everest moment of the encounters - the only time a prime minister has contributed his 'new ideas'. Otherwise, our prime ministers have seen their being there in itself as the reason for the visit, and, hopefully, a high point of their prime ministership.

  • Volume 40 Issue 2 - When diplomatic breakups occur
    • Abstract: Bellamy, Paul
      This year marks the 40th anniversary of the sudden break in diplomatic relations between Australia and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea or the DPRK). This widely publicised and controversial break, along with somewhat bizarre developments, occurred only shortly after the establishment of relations in 1974 and helped lay the foundations for a challenging future; official relations did not resume until May 2000. Canberra hoped that New Zealand would also recognise the North. Developments were watched closely across the Tasman Sea, and they ultimately helped to discourage Wellington from taking similar steps. Indeed, official relations with North Korea would only be announced in March 2001.

  • Volume 40 Issue 2 - A challenging legacy
    • Abstract: Mack, Hans-Hubertus
      The First World War has achieved a relevance in Germany that would have been difficult to conceive just a few years ago. Until this change the study of the origins, course and results of the First World War from a German perspective has largely been confined to specialists. Only occasionally, as during the controversy over the theses advanced by historian Fritz Fischer in the 1960s, has the First World War overshadowed the Second World War in public discourse. The First World War seems to provide a challenging legacy and even after 100 years its reappraisal remains exciting and productive.

  • Volume 40 Issue 2 - Australia's dangerous ally
    • Abstract: Fraser, Malcolm
      Australia's alliance with the United States has been the lynchpin of Australia's approach to security for more than 60 years. But it is now becoming a serious and dangerous liability. Insofar as it cedes to Washington the ability to decide when Australia goes to war, it detracts from Australia's integrity as a sovereign nation. Unwise US policies in the post-Soviet Union era underscore the dangers of Australia's alignment with the United States. The existence of US installations, and forces, on Australian soil ensures that Australia will be committed to any US venture in the region, with possibly disastrous consequences.

  • Volume 40 Issue 1 - Facing a changing security environment
    • Abstract: Key, John
      New Zealand faces a changing security environment. It can no longer rely on its distance from the world's trouble spots for safety. The rapid rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIS, is a game changer for this country. A well-resourced, globally focused terrorist entity, highly skilled in recruitment techniques utilising social media, it exposes us to a type of threat that we lack both the legislative tools and resources to combat. The government will promote a range of legislative measures to bolster its ability to deal with this threat. It will also consider means of providing military training for the Iraqi armed forces.

  • Volume 40 Issue 1 - Getting around the Security Council table
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Terence
      Following its outstanding success in achieving election to the United Nations Security Council, New Zealand must now contemplate what it might achieve on the world body. There is no doubt that it will face many challenges not only in addressing the wide-ranging issues likely to come before the council in the next two years but also in finding the resources properly to back its effort in New York. New Zealand's capacity for independent foreign policy thinking on the Security Council is likely to be severely tested as it grapples with complex issues and seeks to advance its own causes, which include reform of the use of the veto by permanent members and changes in the composition of the council.

  • Volume 40 Issue 1 - Towards an all-hazards approach
    • Abstract: Rolfe, Jim
      National security issues are complex in their character, have unclear boundaries as to their effects and involve stakeholders with both domestic and international agendas. The national security system must, therefore, deal with the issues on a system-wide rather than issue-by-issue basis, be resilient enough to absorb any initial problems and be able to adapt to changing situations. All this within an environment that balances the rights of the individual with the intrusive and coercive needs of the government. New Zealand has been working for nearly 30 years to achieve this state. The process is well advanced, but there is still much to be done.
