A non-partisan think tank working towards a sustainable future for New Zealand.The Institute applies hindsight, insight and foresight to explore major challenges and opportunities facing New Zealand over the long term. Enjoy the sunshine. Our office will be open again on 9 January 2016.
TacklingPovertyNZ workshop outputs are now published
The TacklingPovertyNZ project is an initiative of the McGuinness Institute. The TacklingPovertyNZ regional tour would not have been possible without the ongoing support of the New Zealand Treasury and the Councils concerned – Queenstown Lakes District Council, Manawatu District Council, Rotorua Lakes Council, Gisborne District Council and Far North District Council. The series of discussion papers are being published over the next two days.
A draft Working Paper 2017/01 TacklingPovertyNZ 2016 National Tour: Methodology, results and observations has also been released for comment here. The final Working Paper will be published in late January 2017. Any feedback on this paper is welcome.
We have also published the proposal for the Right Honourable Bill English on demarcation zones here.

Working Paper 2016/02: New Zealand King Salmon: A financial perspective
The Institute publishes three newsletters. The overarching newsletter showcases the work of the Institute and is produced twice a year – it outlines what has happened and what we hope to achieve over the next six months. The other two newsletters are research project based, and are published every few months to show and illustrate the narrative and actions happening broadly in New Zealand – see the TalentNZ and TacklingPovertyNZ projects for more information.
As a result of our observation that foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we have developed three interlinking policy projects: ForesightNZ, StrategyNZ and ReportingNZ.
These diverse topics represent areas where New Zealand has the potential to bring about meaningful change. How New Zealand responds to these issues will shape our public policy landscape for generations to come.
The Institute facilitates workshops on public policy issues that are strategic, complex, and long-term in nature. Learn more.
