The Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy programme offers outstanding American professionals the opportunity to gain experience in public policy in New Zealand, and to gain first-hand knowledge of economic, social and political reforms, and management of the government sector.
The programme has three goals: to reinforce New Zealand-United States links; to improve public policy practice in both countries by the cross-fertilisation of ideas and experience; and to build an ongoing network of public policy experts on both sides of the Pacific. Towards the end of their Fellowships, the Fellows publish policy reports at a series of public seminars. We encourage members of the public service to attend these seminars, in order to learn about interesting projects that have been undertaken by practitioners who have a US perspective.
These seminars are jointly presented by IPANZ, the School of Government at Victoria University of Wellington and Fulbright New Zealand.
