WE EMBRACE DEBATE ON ISSUES OF GLOBAL SIGNIFICANCE
 

Listen to our new podcast from the NZIIA Youth Panel

On The NZIIA podcast, we talk all things international. From trade to geopolitics to diplomacy, the NZIIA seeks to encourage an understanding of the importance of global affairs to the political and economic well-being of New Zealand as in this interconnected age, what happens beyond these shores affects us all at home.

In the first episode of the NZIIA podcast, we tackle COVID-19. 

Through looking at the overall numbers, breaking down the situation in India, and NZ's plan to roll out vaccines in 2021, the NZIIA Youth Panel shares their thoughts and insights on one of the biggest international relations topics in decades.
