The New Zealand report covers the three branches of government (legislature, executive, and judiciary), key watchdog agencies, law enforcement, political parties, the media, business, and NGOs.
TINZ makes recommendations in its NIS assessment, and many of these have been accepted and implemented. New Zealand’s first NIS assessment was carried out in 2003. The 2013 NIS assessment focussed on developments over the intervening 10-year period. In 2018 Transparency International NZ undertook an update report of the 2013 NIS assessment. TINZ intends to carry out a full NIS assessment in 2023.
