Summary
"New Zealand needs a constitution that is easy to understand, reflects our shared identity and nationhood, protects rights and liberties, and prevents governments from abusing power. The current constitution is vague, jumbled and unclear. It can be easily overridden or changed according to political whim. This book aims to change that. It proposes a modern, codified constitution that is accessible and clear, and it aims to stimulate debate about who we are as a nation, and how we should be governed - so we can forge enduring arrangements now, instead of waiting for a crisis to force our hand. A Constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand is a case for change, and an impassioned plea for government to be transparent, accountable, responsive, and reflect the values of all New Zealanders"--Publisher information
