The New Zealand Initiative is New Zealand’s leading think tank.

Since being founded in 2012, we have been producing leading research into a number of areas of interest to New Zealanders, including housing, education, local government reform, and health.

Our thought-provoking reports feature prominently in the media, ensuring that our robust research informs debates on public policy.

Through our research we uncover policies and ideas that promote a competitive, open and dynamic economy, and a free, fair and cohesive society.

For more information about particular areas of research, please select from the categories on the side panel.
