About the Event

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 panel discussion chaired by Maty Nikkhou-O’Brien.
