Fulbright New Zealand, IPANZ and the Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy Board invite you to a series of public seminars by this year’s six Ian Axford Fellows.
Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy are for outstanding mid-career professionals from the United States of America to research, travel and gain practical experience in public policy in New Zealand for seven months, during which time they are hosted at relevant government agencies in Wellington and work towards publishing a policy report. Those policy reports will be launched at the seminars, and will subsequently be available to download from the Fulbright New Zealand website.
