About the NZIPR – Leading and Supporting Pacific Research
The New Zealand Institute for Pacific Research is a collaboration by three of New Zealand’s universities, with partners both within New Zealand and throughout the Pacific.
With relationships with the University of the South Pacific, the Australian National University, Peking University, the University of Hawaii, the Secretariat for the Pacific Community and with other clusters of research expertise, it draws upon a broad range of capacities.
Key support partners are the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Pacific Cooperation Foundation.
The NZIPR Board provides strategic direction, monitors outcomes, and has oversight of the work of the Institute. It reviews and approves the strategic plan of the Institute and comprises a nominee from each of the University consortium partners (Auckland, AUT, Otago) and one nominee from MFAT. The NZIPR Director also attends Board meetings.
The Board meets twice a year.
