Nielsen-Craig, Christine and Holland, Martin. (2003) Register of European Studies in New Zealand 2003. National Centre for Research on Europe. UNSPECIFIED.
[From the Introduction] This second edition of the Register of European Studies in New Zealand provides a brief overview of the development of both EU and European Studies over the past five years. The period is characterised both by significant institutional developments and, paradoxically, by stagnation, perhaps even a contraction, in the European curriculum taught in New Zealand. A key to those areas of successful development has been external funding - largely through the European Commission. The absence of any dedicated New Zealand Government funding for European Studies continues to stand in stark contrast to the financial support given to the Asia 2000 project. External funding is indicative of the wider global importance of Europe, and should encourage New Zealand to use its own resources to develop greater multidisciplinary expertise domestically. Significant developments have taken place over the last five years: however, the onus is now upon New Zealand institutions and Government to extend these developments and establish a critical mass of EU and European scholars and graduates.
