Are Crown Research Institutes fit for purpose? | RNZ

Short answer: No. Polite answer is much longer. See Troy's interview.

Towards the end, he talks about NZAS calling for a full external review of the science system. In my mind, it is a whole of government excercise which includes the CRIs, Universities, MBIE, various ministries, etc.

Chris Trotter looks at what happens when 'light-handed regulation' turns out to mean 'no regulation at all' | interest.co.nz

Chucking this one in because it covers the way regulation has been (not) done in NZ. The history in the article is helpful to me.
