Ric's Work Valuable

Ric's Work Valuable

Need I also mention the valuable studies in various countries undertaken by the Research and Information Commission (RIO)? Its work and the resolutions and letters of protest based on them have secured the reiease of political prisoners and have influenced delegations at the United Nations, as well as providing reliable information about situations facing other students in the international student community. This information has enabled students from all parts of the world to make their own contributions to a better society in their own and other countries.

It is clearly against our interests and our responsibilities to stand aloof from the international student movement and the attitudes and undertakings which It involves. The president of NZUSA. Michael Moriarty, has stressed the Importance to New Zealand students of participation in the ISC because of this country's comparative isolation.

It is this isolation and its effects on the basis of our attitude and thinking that pinpoints the major lesson given by the conference. It highlights the most significant contribution which I believe New Zealand students can make to our society. This relates to our relationship with the people of Asia and the Pacific.
