Our research projects are framed and fed into by our policy projects and address a range of significant issues facing New Zealand. They are developed in response to a wide range of areas of study:
As a result of our observation that in policy-making, foresight drives strategy, strategy requires reporting, and reporting shapes foresight, we developed three interlinking policy projects:
Each must align if we want New Zealand to develop durable, robust and forward-looking public policy.
Linkages between projects
However, policy projects alone will not ensure we create value; we need to delve into complex problems in order to solve them. That is the role of the research projects. On the right is how we see these two types of projects; the Institute focuses on the research project, through the lens of foresight, strategy and reporting. This way we can move between the specific to the general with relative ease.
