This article summarises the background to my current PhD work, considering questions around what academics and activists on the left in Aotearoa in 2012 think about the idea of establishing a major left wing think tank, why one hasn’t developed so far, and what it would take to set one up. I am also examining eight community based organisations to see what we can learn from their experience & history in relation to these questions. Feedback on the article is welcomed.
