The New Zealand Association for the Study of Religions is the main professional body in New Zealand for academics and others engaged in the critical, analytical and cross-cultural study of religion, past and present. The NZASR is not a forum for confessional, apologetical, or other similar concerns. Its constitution is available here. The NZASR is a member association of the International Association for the History of Religions.

The NZASR organizes an annual conference and publishes Yana, an occasional newsletter. Information about conferences and other matters of interest to members is distributed via the NZASR mailing list.
