Line of Defence Magazine Winter 2020

Our Mission

The Defsec New Zealand website went live in 2015, bringing the combined content of Aotearoa New Zealand’s premier defence, security, and fire protection publications together onto a single online platform. Defsec’s mission is to provide expert news and analysis on the sectors that keep New Zealanders safe, and to do so in a way that is independent and non-partisan, and that eschews the transience of the 24-hour news cycle.

Although, by international standards, New Zealand is a small, wealthy, and peaceful nation, we have unique perspectives to offer on issues of insecurity, disaster, and conflict, and on the enduring human search for safety, security, and peace. Defsec provides a voice to these perspectives.
