Abstract

This paper reports on a project relating to the development of a National Research Strategy for Leisure, Arts, Outdoor Recreation, Sport, and Community Recreation in New Zealand. The purpose of the strategy - as was the case with an earlier project in Australia, the Australian Leisure Research Agenda - is to stimulate the development, dissemination, and use of research in leisure-related fields. In addition to raising selected issues in the development of research strategies, the paper describes the research approach, aims, and methodology adopted for the project and presents preliminary results. It also provides critical insights regarding possible future directions for research strategies in leisure-related fields.
