The New Zealand Political Studies Association / Te Kāhui Tātai Tōrangapū o Aotearoa, or NZPSA, was founded in 1974 and is a collegial association of individuals. It exists to promote and encourage the study of politics involving not just academics, but also students and practitioners, journalists and pollsters. The NZPSA is a constituent member of the Royal Society of New Zealand Te Apārangi, and holds an annual conference that welcomes a range of disciplinary perspectives to the study of political phenomenon.
The New Zealand Political Studies Association condemns and is deeply saddened by the March 15th attack on the Christchurch mosques. Our sympathy goes out to all those affected by this horrific event.
