Friday 30 June - Monday  3 July 2000

Since its inception in 1966 the University of Otago Foreign Policy School has developed an international reputation, drawing top speakers from around the world.

The director and an organising academic committee are responsible for selecting the speakers and themes for each school which have included "Arms Disarmament and New Zealand", "Security in a Post-Cold War World", and in 1999, "The Global Economy: Continuity and Change".

Having high quality input means high quality output as well. The panel discussions and other informal discussions flowing from speaker presentations provide the basis for important ongoing dialogue. Papers from the schools are published and now form an important body of information.

Originally started as a workshop on foreign affairs issues, the school soon attracted the attention of New Zealand's Ministry of Foreign Affairs which recognised its value as a weekend retreat for officials. Other Government officials from the Prime Minister's office and the Ministry of Defence, as well as academics, journalists, diplomats, members of the private sector and interested public also participate regularly.

As a result the Foreign Policy School is now regarded as the premiere event on New Zealand's international calendar. One of the strengths of the school is that it is a weekend residential event - limited to 150 people - rather than simply a conference. It works particularly well because it happens away from the pressure of Wellington, New Zealand's capital, and takes place in the intimate atmosphere of Salmond Hall, one of the University's halls of residence.
