  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - MFAT at 75: Tales to be told
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      New Zealand's foreign service at 75 is without a scholarly history or its own dedicated home. It is the only major New Zealand government ministry without either. Our foreign service warrants new scholarship. The big story has to be finding staff for the foreign service. State sector reforms introduced in 1988 made havoc of Alister McIntosh's vision for the foreign service. A consequence for the foreign service of that state sector shake-up was the surge of senior staff departing to become chief executives of other departments.

  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - An enduring cold war enigma
    • Abstract: Ricketts, Rita
      The 2017 release of MI5 papers relating to Paddy Costello did little to settle the question of whether or not he was a Soviet spy. Although they indicated MI5's conviction that Costello was a security risk, Costello's own writings paint a very different picture: they suggest a far-sighted individual pointing out unpalatable truths, one who was determined to set New Zealand on a more independent course. He saw blind obsequiousness to the West as a danger. His outspoken views were an anathema to post-war Western intelligence services, and they set about ensuring his removal from a diplomatic role and continued surveillance of him.

  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - The case for a look east trading policy
    • Abstract: Kahiya, Eldrede
      New Zealand has benefited from the historical growth in Asia, and an aggressive look-Asia trading philosophy. However, with demand for New Zealand food and beverages in South-east Asia likely to subside and predictions of a slowdown in Asia, sustainable opportunities to grow New Zealand's exports lie elsewhere. The tech sector is poised to play a bigger role not only in the domestic economy but also in leading the charge of lightweight high value exports. New Zealand's tech sector is geared toward supporting agribusiness, which makes it an ideal fit for Latin American economies, whose success, like New Zealand's, derives from agricultural production.

  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - Shifting the dial: The next steps
    • Abstract: Peters, Winston
      The coalition government's goal is to 'shift the dial' with a Pacific Reset that is designed to restore New Zealand's relationships in the Pacific. The aim is to reverse the decline in this country's influence among the Pacific Islands. The reset is about working with our Pacific family to be independent and self-sufficient. The government's commitment to pragmatic action is highlighted by the $714 million increase in official development assistance announced in this year's budget. Its objective is change and not a modified status quo. One way is by investing in footprint projects which last for 50 years or longer.

  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - Putting India on the radar screen
    • Abstract: Bridge, Nick
      After university, I managed, by some good luck, to get accepted into the External Affairs Department, as it was then known. Ahead of my main interview, I learnt that the head of the outfit had some pet dislikes, including chaps with beards and those who wore what in those days were known as walk shorts. I had a couple of pairs. They were quite the thing, with long socks, for summer drinks. But I would not have considered them in any way appropriate for my interview. I put on my best suit and waited apprehensively to be called in.

  • Volume 43 Issue 6 - Recognising our naval history
    • Abstract: Martin, John
      In addition to its land and air military history, New Zealand has a proud and rich maritime history. When New Zealand's military history is discussed, there is a tendency to focus on the large numbers of soldiers that were contributed to various conflicts. Yet New Zealand's naval history extends from the foundations of our nation and through the major conflicts of the 20th century to today. Our maritime focus is entirely consistent with New Zealand's history of making significant contributions to the efforts of likeminded nations to preserve freedom of the seas. Today, as in the past, deployments are planned to advance New Zealand's interests and relationships and contribute to the international maritime security system.

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - The great cyber game
    • Abstract: Stent, Dylan
      North Korea's hacking competence has become as dreaded as its nuclear arsenal. While its missile and nuclear proliferation dominated the news in 2017, its hackers quietly improved their capabilities and expanded ways in which to conduct cyber-attacks. In 2009 the Reconnaissance General Bureau was formed by consolidating many foreign collection and analysis groups. It is North Korea's primary foreign intelligence service, and is responsible for collection and clandestine operations. From 2009 cyber strategy has seen three stages: cyber-espionage, cyber-disruption and cyber financial gain. Although New Zealand has not been the target of North Korean hacking activity, the threat remains acute.

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - Korea's new journey towards a nuclear-free and
           peaceful peninsula
    • Abstract: Yeo, Seung-Bae
      The two Koreas are leaving the dark days of war and hostility behind and moving toward a peaceful and denuclearised Korean peninsula based upon the vision of President Moon Jae-in. The Panmunjom Declaration of April 2018 and the June US - North Korea Singapore Statement will guide us as we navigate uncharted waters through a historic transformation on the Korean peninsula. As President Moon said, 'there may be many difficulties ahead, but we will never give up this bold journey'. Koreans believe that New Zealand, their reliable partner, will go with them on this new journey.

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - Alister McIntosh and John Beaglehole: NZIIA pals
    • Abstract: Ross, Ken
      Life-long friends John Beaglehole and Alister McIntosh were among the foremost intellects in public affairs in New Zealand for the four decades following the election of the first Labour government in 1935. Integral for them was giving best endeavours for the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs to be the go-to public locale for the smart discussions of the country's engagement in global developments. Present at the set up of the first New Zealand in 1934, they contributed much to its initial liveliness and collaborated closely in enabling the NZIIA's most important event - the Sixth Commonwealth Relations Conference in Palmerston North in 1959.

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - Coping with the challenges of modern existence
    • Abstract: O'Brien, Terence
      New Zealand is navigating a level of uncertainty not seen for several generations. Globalisation of the world's economy offers great opportunity but also creates genuine anxieties amongst people in many places. There is a vital need for codes of predictable behaviour between governments. But the Trump administration's transactional version of global leadership, together with capricious presidential tweeting on the internet and foreign policy made by presidential whim, feed profound uncertainty. New Zealand's goal must remain to better leverage the totality of what it is and seeks to be as a society, in order to bolster a role and contribution internationally that serves its interests.

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - Defending New Zealand: A new emphasis
    • Abstract: Mapp, Wayne
      The 'Strategic Defence Policy Statement 2018' may yet be seen as the most significant change in defence policy since the Foreign Affairs and Defence Select Committee report 'Defence Beyond 2000' informed Helen Clark's government. It is the first time in three decades that a formal government document has said that the rise of China is seen as a challenge to the existing order. The strength of this view all depends on whether the statement is primarily a reflection of New Zealand First's muscular approach to defence and to China or it reflects the Labour - New Zealand First coalition as whole

  • Volume 43 Issue 5 - New Zealand - North Korea: Towards constructive
           engagement
    • Abstract: Bellamy, Paul
      Although limited, positive interaction with North Koreans visiting New Zealand can encourage direct, transparent and forthright discussions, trust-building, a greater understanding and exposure to different perspectives. This in turn can help lay the foundations for constructive dialogue whereby the international community encourages the peaceful resolution of Korean peninsula tensions. While diplomacy faces serious hurdles and caution is prudent, the 2014 North Korean visit hosted by the Waikato Institute of Technology was considered a success by participants.

  • Volume 43 Issue 4 - Size is not the issue
    • Abstract: Leadbeater, Maire
      New Zealand has failed to compensate the East Timorese for backing Indonesia during the time East Timor was under occupation. From the 1970s to the 1990s government officials attempted to keep defence exchanges out of the public eye to avoid domestic debate and controversy. This lack of transparency is on-going. New Zealand's defence ties with Indonesia are being strengthened, but the government withholds background information supporting this decision. Given that the Indonesian military has not been held to account for past crimes or for its continuing human rights crimes against the people of West Papua, this decision cannot be justified.

  • Volume 43 Issue 4 - The royalty commonwealth summit: London, 2018
    • Abstract: McIntyre, WDavid
      The first Commonwealth Summit to be hosted in London for 40 years was held in April 2018. The two-day Heads of Government Meeting (Chogm) followed three days of civil society and business forums and one day of ministerial meetings. British senior ministers and many members of the royal family addressed the Youth, Women's, People's, and Business Forums. Heads of government adopted a Blue Charter, new guidelines for election observation, an agenda for trade and investment connectivity and a cyber security declaration, but the only matter to get serious media mention was their endorsement of the Queen's wish that Prince Charles would one day succeed her as head of the Commonwealth.

    • Abstract: Harris, Peter
      In his report to the 19th Congress of the Communist Party of China last October, President Xi Jinping was resolutely upbeat about China's achievements and prospects. At the same time the Congress unveiled a new Politburo Standing Committee and a new military commission that are, it seems, amenable to Xi's will. For the next four years or so President Xi will be in a commanding position, strong enough to achieve many of his goals. So why has he changed the rules, allowing him to stay on indefinitely as China's leader' There are several possible explanations, none of them entirely reassuring.

  • Volume 43 Issue 4 - Towards an 'absolute' prohibition on torture
    • Abstract: Sutton, Jessica
      Despite a seemingly straightforward absolute prohibition on torture as expressed in the relevant international instruments, a concerning shift towards a form of situational permissiveness with regards to wartime torture is clearly discernible. As supported by a recent survey from the International Committee of the Red Cross, perspectives are moving in a worrying direction, where a significant percentage of individuals are accepting torture as an unavoidable part of civil and international conflicts. In this article I will discuss the means by which the relevant provisions prohibiting torture in their current state may be circumvented by states, and will present arguments for strengthening and further developing these provisions. The benefits of current societal conditions and youth engagement as an impetus for development of the relevant international instruments will be emphasised.

      United States President Donald Trump is known neither for his attention to history nor for his sense of irony. It is thus unlikely he noticed that the first anniversary of his presidency coincided closely with the centenary of a very different vision for the international role of the United States than that embodied in his 'America First' ethos.

  • Volume 43 Issue 4 - Myanmar today: Democracy or demagoguery'
    • Abstract: Wilson, Ross
      In 2017 Myanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi moved, in the eyes of the international media, from saint to pariah because of her response to the crisis in Rakhine state. But Myanmar was subject to oppressive military rule for more than 50 years. The military had an exceptionally deep penetration of society, culture and even religion, and remain powerful today. With effectively two governments in Myanmar, Suu Kyi remains the best option for a successful transition to democratic government, but the current generation of internationally connected young leaders are the best hope for nation building which promotes tolerance, understanding and inclusiveness.

  • Volume 43 Issue 4 - Encouraging closer ties with Latin America
    • Abstract: Tabuteau, Fletcher
      The opening of the New Zealand embassy in Bogot , Colombia was a milestone event. It tightened New Zealand's links to Latin America's third most populous country and one of growing importance. Colombia is at the crossroads of Central and South America and is of geo-strategic importance as it increases its international engagement. Its economic growth and international profile have grown impressively in a very short period; and it is projected to become South America's second largest economy by 2020. But New Zealand's Latin America focus is not just on Colombia. It stretches far beyond any one country to regional economic integration and free trade architecture.

      The European Union both in its earlier incarnations and currently has been a force for stability and development in Europe since the devastation that was the Second World War. But it is currently facing serious challenges not the least the impending departure of Britain. From both a historical and contemporary perspective, New Zealand has a very real interest in a strong European Union. New Zealand ministers and officials should use what influence they have to push the European Union and Britain to reach an amicable agreement on their future relationship.

    • Abstract: Ardern, Jacinda
      In an uncertain world, where long accepted positions have been met with fresh challenges, New Zealand's response lies in the approach that, with rare exceptions, it has always taken: speaking up for what it believes in, standing up when its values are challenged and working tirelessly to draw in partners with shared views. The Labour-led government believes New Zealand can pursue this approach with more vigour - across the Pacific, in disarmament and in climate change, and in defence of its friends and the things that matter to it. It wants to build an international reputation that New Zealanders can be proud of.

  • Volume 43 Issue 3 - Fighting jihadists in Mindanao
    • Abstract: Gray, Simon
      Despite its recent military defeat in Marawi in October, the Islamic State-Eastern Region endures, recruiting new members and carrying out new attacks in 2018. Underpinning this situation are enduring societal conditions born of decades-long conflict in Mindanao, which have deteriorated further following the Marawi siege. These conditions gave rise to the ISER and continue to provide it with a fertile environment in which to operate and regroup. If left unchecked, this situation will likely regenerate the ISER, or a morphed version of it. The prescription for such a scenario requires a holistic, multi-dimensional 'hard' and 'soft' power approach, counteracting the ISER at both military and societal levels.

      New Zealand is now navigating a level of uncertainty not seen for several generations. Three current issues illustrate the complexities of the present situation - nuclear war dangers and North Korea, the South China Sea and Iraq. Dealing with these issues will challenge the Labourled government led by Jacinda Ardern. In addition the new administration has made clear its priority concerns rest with the Pacific Islands region. It is aiming 'to shift the dial' on New Zealand policy in the region, especially aid policy, in order to reinforce understanding, friendship, mutual benefit, collective ambition and better diplomacy. This, too, will not be easy.

      The New Zealand - China relationship is almost half a century old. Over time we have learned how to build the relationship on the basis of mutual respect and shared interests, despite obvious differences in fundamental values. On the economic front, there was a significant advance after the signing of the free trade agreement. Since it came into effect in 2008, China has become our largest trading partner. New Zealand currently supplies over 80 per cent of butter imports into China and over 50 per cent of cheese imports. China is a growing investor in New Zealand.

    • Abstract: Rigg, Bob
      No one, it seems, is talking of the political culture that made it possible for an individual so manifestly unsuited for the world's top job to be elected US president. It is not Trump who is the problem. The United States has for some time been degenerating into a dysfunctional and corrupt democracy no longer shaped by the popular will, but rather by the machinations of prodigiously wealthy individuals and enormously powerful corporate members of the military-industrial complex. The embarrassing fact that the United States spends more on defence than all of its major potential adversaries taken together is simply overlooked.

  • Volume 43 Issue 3 - A maritime shift'
    • Abstract: Robinson, Colin
      New Zealand's initial military focus on land forces changed after the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. Air and naval forces then also became vitally important. From the early 1990s there was a shift back towards land operations. But China's air and naval power is rising, and thus the New Zealand Defence Force's force structure may need to change in response, over the next 20 plus years. Repeating 2017's deployment of HMNZS 'Te Kaha' with a US carrier strike group to the South China Sea needs careful consideration. The NZDF actions should avoid disrupting Foreign Affairs' engagement if at all possible.

    • Abstract: Satyanand, Anand
      A grouping of 52 states, the Commonwealth has deep roots in the British Empire. As a form of association, it grew out of meetings of heads of government as the constitutional framework evolved during the 20th century. Pivotal decisions in 1965 provided the basis of today's institution. The Commonwealth Secretariat and the Commonwealth Foundation, established then, have played key roles in the last half-century. Much of value has been achieved, but there is a need, in present conditions of the world, to review the relevance of the Commonwealth with a view to both taking advantage of opportunities and resetting compasses.

      New Zealand's experience in working with a wide range of countries in a variety of circumstances has provided the capacity to pursue a strategy of common security based on enhancing respectful relationships throughout the international community. This strategy could involve actors throughout government, business, community and non-governmental organisations as well as the traditional security services. It would be expected to have substantial benefits by enhancing our standing internationally, enriching our society domestically and building in resilience throughout. It would require a major initiative and significant changes in thinking, but would be consistent with many of our national values.

Peter Fraser has been our most outstanding prime minister for seeking the best possible United Nations. Bruce Turner, Dag Hammarskj ld and U Thant's 'finance minister', is the New Zealander who, as a UN employee, has done most towards making the organisation capable and effective. Clark's 'double second' to Fraser and Turner adds much to her lustre for furthering New Zealand's 'small state rampant' credentials at the United Nations.

      On 29 November 1947 New Zealand voted for UN General Assembly Resolution 181, which recommended the partitioning of British mandate Palestine into a Jewish state and an Arab state. While accepting that partition was not the perfect solution to the problem of meeting both Jewish and Arab aspirations, New Zealand saw it as the fairest in the circumstances. New Zealand's support was qualified. It favoured a two-state solution then - and still does today. This is reflected in its support for Security Council Resolution 2334 in 2016, which said that Israel's settlements in Palestine territory violate international law and undermine a two-state solution.

      Holding the moral high ground when dealing with North Korea should be easy. But President Trump has achieved the impossible. In making his 'fire and fury' threat to North Korea, he descended to a level normally associated with the leadership in Pyongyang. He subsequently, at the United Nations, doubled down on his threat by warning that North Korea faced total destruction. Trump's rhetoric confirmed Kim Jong-un's suspicions that the United States' primary objective is regime change. This renders a nuclear deterrent all the more important in North Korean eyes. Kim has pressed on with his programme with amazing speed.

      Unofficial interaction between New Zealanders and North Koreans has shaped bilateral relations between the two countries, and continues to do so. Although caution is prudent, such unofficial contact can help lay the foundations for constructive dialogue, greater understanding and formal diplomacy. Visiting diplomats have interacted skilfully with their North Korean counterparts, and have been treated well. Constructive engagement and dialogue is critical to promoting peace on the Korean Peninsula, especially with heightened tensions. Active moves by the international community and Pyongyang to help peacefully resolve tensions using such tools are much more desirable than resort to a high-risk use of force.

APEC has recently been described as the 'premier economic forum' for promoting regional growth and integration and 'a global leader in addressing pressing problems'. The 21 APEC member economies, including New Zealand, are home to 40 per cent of the world's population and account for around 60 per cent of global production.

    • Abstract: McMillan, Stuart
      Populism was not the full explanation for the British vote in the referendum in June 2016 to leave the European Union. Nor did it explain fully the vote for Donald Trump to be president of the United States later in 2016. But it undoubtedly played a major role in both outcomes. In 2017 in the Netherlands the avowedly populist Party for Freedom, led by Geert Winders, won twenty seats in the House of Representatives, becoming the second larg-est party. Later in the year, in Germany the AfD, the Alternative for Germany, a nationalist right-wing populist party, won seats in the Bundestag, the lower house, for the first time. Members of the far-right Freedom Party, which was founded by former Nazis, now hold major ministerial positions in Austria. Besides these developments, populist nationalist sentiment in the governments of Hungary and Poland is leading those countries in directions worrying the European Union.

    • Abstract: Amusan, Lere; Olelekan, Seyi
      Hunger resulting from food insecurity is a known life-threatening social menace facing mankind, especially in many sub-Saharan Africa countries today. It is a challenge that has attracted the attention of many governments and relevant stakeholders in recent times. The reason is simple: the continuous vicious cycle of poverty and the pitiable state of food and nutrition security. Global climate change is partly responsible for the hunger being experienced by many people, especially in farming households, across the African continent. Many farming smallholders are surviving in a subsistence economy. Their livelihoods and sustenance largely depend on natural resource endowments.

    • Abstract: Williams, Ben; Morrison, Matthew
      Two thousand seventeen proved to be a difficult year for the United States. With the inauguration of a new administration dividing opinions worldwide, America's foreign policy has sparked both resentment and jubilation in different areas of the world. Perhaps one of the most difficult regions for the United States through-out the year was the Middle East, with various complexities once again rearing their heads. We saw allies disagreeing with United States decisions and squabbling amongst themselves, with some seeming to turn away from the American-led order. These decisions by the United States and its allies have increasingly complicated diplomatic prospects for the region's future. This article will look at the Jerusalem decision, the Qatar Crisis and Iran, highlighting increasing tensions between US allies in the Middle East.
