This volume is about our capacity to make sense of a turbulent world.…”

In 2003 Victoria University hosted the Fourth Wellington Conference on World Affairs. This book is a collection of papers from that gathering. The theme was ‘ New Zealand in World Affairs’ and focused on three major threads: New Zealand'’s role in the Pacific, Trans-Tasman relations and New Zealand in a globalising world.

Chapters include a discussion and deconstruction of globalization; the role of diplomacy in a global world; security in Oceania in the post 9/11 era; a survey of diplomacy, politics with regard to nuclear testing by the French and an investigation of the differing world views held by Australia and New Zealand.

Edited by Ralph Pettman, professor in the Political Science and International Relations Programme at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand in a Globalising World includes contributions by noted New Zealand experts Brian Easton, Denis Mclean and Malcolm McKinnon as well as from overseas scholars.
