Think tank

The McGuinness Institute is a non-partisan think tank working towards a sustainable future for New Zealand. Led by Chief Executive Wendy McGuinness, the Institute undertakes research and analysis with a view to contributing to a national conversation on New Zealand’s long-term future. The Institute’s work is guided by the following principles: A commitment to… Sustainability: Achieving long-term benefits for all of New Zealand, driven by a focus on the year 2058. Fairness: Actively seeking diverse perspectives in order to develop innovative work practices, stress-test our assumptions and avoid biases. Inclusiveness: Providing platforms and opportunities for New Zealanders, with a particular focus on amplifying the voices of young people between 18 and 25. Practicality: Producing informative, evidence-based research that is easily accessible to the public, enabling New Zealanders to learn lessons from the past and develop effective policy for the future. Relationships: Working locally and globally with other institutions, NGOs, iwi, hapū and Pasifika peoples to actively develop initiatives that contribute to New Zealand’s social capital.
