The Centre is a non-profit charitable organization that undertakes research and policy analysis on issues of global affairs and New Zealand's role within that sphere.

The Centre's projects focus on each of these areas. It also runs an outreach programme for secondary and tertiary students, resident scholars and academics. It convenes conferences, seminars and public meetings. Further to this, it produces peer-reviewed research reports.
