As part of the Defence Policy Review, the Ministry of Defence and the New Zealand Defence Force sought input from a range of people via an online survey open to all New Zealanders.

Key partners and other interested parties were asked for their input on two broad topics:

  1. The relative importance of the Defence Force’s roles.
  2. Perceived threats to New Zealand’s safety and security in the next ten years and perceptions of the Defence Force’s readiness to meet the threats.

This document summarises the input provided. A separate document summarises input from defence industry on specific topics.
