  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - ASEAN - New Zealand political and security relations
    • Abstract: Seng, Lim Jock; Darussalam, Brunei
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - Beyond 40 years: Reframing ASEAN in New Zealand's
           strategic outlook
    • 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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - Indonesia - New Zealand relations: Platform for a
           stronger ASEAN
    • Abstract: Abdulrahim, Rahimah; Almuttaqi, Ibrahim; Polhaupesy, Steven Yohanes
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - The New Zealand- ASEAN trade partnership: 40 years of
           development and prospects
    • Abstract: Duc Thanh, Nguyen
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - ASEAN - New Zealand's four-decade long relationship
    • Abstract: Shein, Nyunt Maung
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - The ASEAN regional forum and its continued relevance
    • Abstract: Desker, Barry; Teo Li Shan, Sarah; Ming Hui, Dylan Loh
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - New Zealand - ASEAN: A 40-year dialogue
    • Abstract: Capie, David
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - New Zealand's defence relations with asean
    • Abstract: Sinclair, Paul
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 4 - ASEAN focus, southern star
    • Abstract: Halim bin Saad, Tan Sri
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - The Otago foreign policy school turns 50
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      David Lange is the only New Zealand prime minister to have addressed the Otago Foreign Policy School. His 1985 presentation was made at a pivotal point in his global diplomacy and is the high moment in the school's 50 years. The school was one of four developments that improved the national conversation on international affairs in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The school is a much appreciated, enduring quality journeyman contributing to what public discussion there has been in New Zealand of our role in world affairs in the past half-century.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Facing East Asia's complexities without a grand vision
    • Abstract: McMillan, Stuart
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Under construction
    • Abstract: Easton, Brian
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Towards a deeper partnership
    • Abstract: Chandramohan, Balaji
      In January 2015 President Obama visited India for the second time, and was a chief guest at India's Republic Day ceremony. This followed a successful visit by Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to the United States in the previous September. 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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Defence: Striking the right balance
    • Abstract: Brownlee, Gerry
      The global strategic environment has changed in important ways in the five years since the least defence white paper in 2010. New Zealand must understand and adapt to these realities if we are to advance our security and prosperity. Our immediate region remains the highest priority for defence. 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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - Takeshima and the Northern Territories in Japan's
           nationalism
    • Abstract: Bukh, Alexander
      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.

  • Volume 40 Issue 3 - How jihadists think and act
    • Abstract: Pourhamzavi, Karim
      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.

    • 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.

    • 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.

      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 - Global diplomats: The second tier
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Norman Kirk, David Lange, Jim Bolger and Helen Clark - the prime ministers who have best promoted global diplomacy for New Zealand since 1945 - have already been highlighted in previous issues of this journal. The other players, a prime ministerial XI, are this article's album of record. Collectively, this eleven have contributed to our high standing as a progressive small state, with a deep internationalism central to our national identity. The most recent measuring stick of this high worldwide standing is our recent resounding election to the United Nations Security Council.

  • Volume 40 Issue 1 - Searching for Pacific climate change solutions
    • Abstract: Kumar, Vikas
      The never-ending climate change negotiations and the doubtful efficacy of belated implementation of adaptation/mitigation solutions necessitate exploration of other solutions to the existential crisis facing the microstates of the Pacific region. We can think of at least five alternatives, namely: legal action against major polluting countries, natural depopulation, planned resettlement, a grand federation of microstates and federation/free association between one or more microstates and a larger state. Of these federation/free association with a larger state is the best alternative. Only Australia and New Zealand satisfy all the criteria that make a larger country a suitable federation/free association partner.

  • 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.
