Research into the challenges and opportunities facing the Pacific Islands will flourish thanks to the uniting of the resources and expertise of three New Zealand universities.
Launched in March 2016, the University of Auckland, Auckland University of Technology and the University of Otago have formed a consortium to provide innovative research for the New Zealand Institute of Pacific Research (NZIPR). The Institute has been funded by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade to deliver a world-class research programme focussed on Pacific development, investment and foreign-policy issues.
Drawing on further support from a range of international partners across the Pacific region, the NZIPR will be New Zealand’s thought leader in Pacific Research.
New Zealand Institute for Pacific Research is hosted by the University of Auckland.
