Thomas Nash, along with Laura O’Connell Rapira, Max Harris and Nina Hall have established an organisation called New Zealand Alternative aiming to widen the public conversation around Aotearoa New Zealand’s role in the world. The press release announcing the event stated the "organisation will do research, policy development and advocacy to help shape a truly independent, values-driven foreign policy for Aotearoa as a South Pacific country". It’s first publication was released this morning, titled Aotearoa New Zealand and Conflict Prevention. Angus Coker Grant spoke with Thomas Nash to find out more and started by asking what exactly the New Zealand Alternative is. Just a note to remember, this interview was conducted yesterday and speaks of the launch as being ‘tomorrow’ but it was in fact this morning.
