Nelson NZIIA is delighted to welcome the Executive director, Dr Hamish McDougall.

In January 2022 Dr Hamish McDougall was appointed Executive Director of the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs - Whare Tawāhi-amahi i Aotearoa (although he presents at this seminar in a personal capacity). He recently completed a PhD in international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) on the topic of Anglo-New Zealand relations in the context of European integration. At LSE he also taught and designed courses on twentieth century international history. His published research include a chapter in the forthcoming official history of the New Zealand foreign service, and articles on New Zealand’s involvement in the 1971 negotiations for European Community accession, and separately, international aspects of the 1981 Springbok Tour. Outside of academia, he has a successful career in corporate and marketing communications, most recently working on the launch of He Tohu, the exhibition of iconic New Zealand documents at the National Library.
