More info on A Constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand

This book sets out the terms of a codified constitution that is accessible and clear and reflects the reality of modern New Zealand.

It aims to stimulate debate about New Zealand’s constitutional arrangements. Our goal is for ordinary New Zealanders to be able to own their constitution, and for that constitution to reflect the realities of our modern nation.

A Constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand makes the case for change.

Scoop strongly agrees with the goals and messages of this book and we are happy to be associated with such an important and timely work.
