Since its inception in 1966, the University of Otago Foreign Policy School has developed into one of the premier events in New Zealand's international calendar. Originally started as a workshop on foreign affairs issues, the School soon attracted the attention of New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, which recognised its value as a weekend retreat for officials. Representatives from other government bodies, as well as academics, journalists, diplomats, members of the private sector and NGOs, and interested members of the public also participate regularly.
