Our purpose is “grow New Zealand for all” and our policy work makes a difference to many aspects of New Zealanders' daily lives.

We have a well-established public policy community who work across a wide range of subjects; from building and resources, to science and innovation, to Maori economic development, to labour and employment; plus many more. Our work programmes are as interesting as they are varied.
