In the final episode of The Citizen’s Handbook, Robbie explores how New Zealand used to interact with the rest of the world, and how it does now. The United Kingdom used to run our international relations, which made no sense, so in 1943, the Department of External Affairs was introduced. Robbie looks at the special relationships New Zealand has with other countries, and what role climate change has in all of this.
