Ideas for 26 May 2013
New Zealand has thrown its hat in the ring for a place on the 2015-16 United Nations Security Council. The bid has seen Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully traveling the world trying to rustle up votes. So what's in it for New Zealand? And how would a New Zealand term on the council differ from that of its competitors for the seat, Spain and Turkey? Ideas speaks to RMIT lecturer in international relations Binoy and former New Zealand ambassador to the United Nations Terence O'Brien. Produced by Jeremy Rose.
