Beyond These Shores

Beyond These Shores

Aotearoa and the World

‘This book aims to open up public debate and encourage all of us to imagine new roles for Aotearoa in the world.’

New Zealand looks out to a turbulent world. Long-standing alliances are fracturing, populism and nationalism are surging and the oceans are rising. Yet precisely for these reasons New Zealand should develop bold new ideas. The contributors to this BWB Text are not, as editor Nina Hall notes, conventional foreign policy voices, but these are far from conventional times. More than comment on current international issues, these contributors ask that we fundamentally rethink New Zealand’s role in the world.
