Abstract

The foreign policies of small states are alleged to have a set of distinctive characteristics. If New Zealand's foreign policy has indeed generally displayed these characteristics, different New Zealand governments have differed in the degree to which their foreign policies have displayed them. Recent National and Labour governments have differed in the scope of their foreign policies; in the importance that they have given to cooperation with allies; in the degree to which they have espoused moral causes in foreign policy, and in the extent to which economic interests have taken priority in their foreign policies. The two types of goverment have not differed a great deal, however, in the degree of their participation in world affairs, or in their propensity to alienate larger powers.
