About the NZCPR

The New Zealand Centre for Political Research, established in 2005, is an independent public policy think tank that provides research-based analysis and commentary on matters of national interest. We do not shy away from the tough issues but speak out where ever strong voices are needed. Our firm belief is that informed citizens are at the heart of a well-functioning democracy.

Through our weekly polls (see RH sidebar),  our Breaking Views blog, and our NZCPR Facebook page, we encourage free and open discussion and debate on political and policy issues.

Our work informs public opinion and helps to shape the future direction of New Zealand.

The NZCPR publishes the largest free weekly electronic public policy newsletter in the country. Click the button to register for the NZCPR Weekly.

The NZCPR.com website attracts around a million visitors a year.

The NZCPR takes no government funding. Instead, we are able to provide our free newsletters and run our campaigns and websites through the goodwill and support of those readers, who value our work and want us to continue speaking out on their behalf.
