The European Union – New Zealand relationship is at a crossroads: Positively, Free Trade Agreement (FTA) negotiations opened in 2018. Yet, the relationship is in flux because of Brexit. The project European Union Public Diplomacy and Outreach in New Zealand (DIPLO) supported by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, focuses on promoting positive EU-NZ relations through:
- increasing the visibility and understanding of the EU in NZ among media, elites and the general public (including youth);
- activities that support increased visibility and understanding about the EU in NZ;
- by fostering dialogue between academia and policy makers, and
- promoting accurate reportage of EU-NZ issues.
