School of Government · Te Kura Kāwanatanga: Institute for Governance and Policy Studies: Policy Papers


The Institute for Governance and Policy Studies (IPS) fosters discussion, research and publication of current issues of domestic and foreign policy. We particularly link academic research and public policy by providing opportunities for independent and detached study, and for neutral and informed discussion of important and relevant issues. Our goal is to engage the broadest possible range of informed opinion, particularly in drawing people together from the universities, the public service, the business community and the wider public community. Our three catchwords might be summed up as study, engage, inform.

See the Institute for Governance and Policy Studies website for more information about the school, their degrees, people, courses, contact details, news and events, and research.
