Social Policy & Parliamentary Unit

Director Major Campbell Roberts at the Beehive
Working to eradicate poverty in NZ

The Social Policy & Parliamentary Unit works toward the eradication of poverty by encouraging policies and practices that strengthen the social framework of New Zealand. 

We provide solid social research and robust policy analysis, engaging with national opinion makers in politics, government, business, media and education.

JUST ACTION CONFERENCE 2014: This year's Just Action conference is a series of roadshows in Dunedin (21 August), Christchurch (23 August), Wellington (26 August) and Auckland (28 August). We're focusing on Just Action in our own backyards. For more info, go to our Just Action conference page. We'd love to see you there!
