A message from our Director of Research and Development

Our research is the first step in our work for New Zealand, creating the foundation for well-considered policy recommendations that we hope create the conditions for families and whānau to flourish.

We know that good policy relies on good policy advice. We work on areas of long-term strategic importance and also respond to short-term policy challenges as they arise. Our independence means we have the freedom to decide what we work on and we work hard to offer briefings to experts and leaders from across the political spectrum so they can make well-informed decisions for the future of Aotearoa New Zealand.

We don’t do it alone either. Our research process involves deep consultation with community organisations, academics, and experts in the field, and every paper is independently peer-reviewed before we release our findings.

Maxim Institute is an independent charitable trust that relies on the generous support of families, community groups, trusts, and individuals—without them, we wouldn’t exist.

We’d love to have you join our Community of Supporters. We need people like you to help us continue this work—and to grow it—so we can respond to today’s challenges and opportunities and help create a better future for the next generation.
