Independence, interest & intelligence:
Rethinking New Zealand’s Security Settings in the Wake of Christchurch?

New Zealand professes an independent foreign policy. But in the wake of the Christchurch attack, questions have been asked about our intelligence agencies’ focus – why did we not see this coming?

How can we prevent such blind spots in the future? And is our interest aligned & well served with current security partnerships and settings? All these questions and more will be brought up in this lively Diplosphere panel discussion.
