Description : "Thye revolutionary restructuring of the [local goverrnment] system in 1989 and the introduction of complementary managerial, operational and financial reforms have invigorated local government as never before in New Zealand's history. Public participation in the annual planning process, debate over the implications of the Treaty of Waitangi, and moves to win for local government its righful place in the constitutional sun spell the end of apathy about local bodies - they can no longer be viewed merely as uncontroversial providers of mundane services. ... Special emphasis is given [in this edition] to recent history, reformed structures and processes, the people involved and their roles, and the political setting within which local bodies meet the needs of their communities. ..."--Back cover.

Description : In a controversial move recently, New Zealanders voted to introduce a new electoral system known as mixed member proportional (MMP). In 1996 the first election will be held under this system. Supporters of MMP claim that it will reduce the power of the cabinet, enhance the role and influence of Parliament, increase public consultation, more accurately represent the people's political preferences, and end the old adversarial style of politics. Critics, however, fear that it will create political uncertainty, governmental instability, policy paralysis and economic stagnation. New Zealand Under MMP assesses the long-term impact of these changes on New Zealand's political system. The authors consider how the party system could evolve, how governments will be formed, and what differences can be expected in the roles of cabinet and Parliament. Attention is also given to the implications of MMP for key groups of voters, as well as the consequences for the public service, pressure groups, and policymaking.

Description : It has often been said that the New Zealand political system provides one of the 'purest' examples of government by party. Constitutionally, political decision-making is in the hands of the governing committee of the majority party; and unlike its Westminster parent, in New Zealand cabinetpower is untrammelled by the need to negotiate with a second chamber. Moreover, New Zealand has a unitary rather than federal political structure. These circumstances will change as New Zealand adopts proportional representation and if it institutes a senate to constrain the actions of the House ofRepresentatives.The primary purpose of this book, therefore, is to examine how cabinet governs New Zealand, and to set the New Zealand experience in the context of theories and practices of cabinet government elsewhere. Models of cabinet power are developed.Second, the aim is to document a system which might substantially be altered, thus providing the basis for future comparison and evaluation.The third aim concerns the dramatic changes undergone by New Zealand in the past decade. The Labour and National governments since 1984 have liberalised economic policy and the state sector has been restructured. Moreover, new social and political movements (women, Maori, the environmental movement)have placed their demands upon the political agenda. It is pertinent to ask whether the nature of cabinet government itself has responded to these changes.Sources: Much of the material for this book has been gathered through interviews of ministers conducted during 1991 and 1992. These interviews sought to uncover the extent to which ministerial roles have changed. They also discuss the nature of consultation with interests and ministerial views onthe relationship between government and the individual. A further data set is another, one hundred (approximately) interviews conducted by the author during the early 1970s on parliamentary careers and cabinet selection. Supplementary material is gathered from ministerial speeches, official reportsand newspaper articles. There will be frequent references to policy examples throughout the book.

Description : This edited collection provides a timely assessment of New Zealand politics in the aftermath of the 1996 election, the first under a proportional electoral system. As well as offering an early analysis of the results of the election, the book explains how electoral reform will impact on the various aspects of the political system. Part One looks at coalition and single party government, together with the likely effects of change on the party system and the role and functions of the Governor-General, parliament, cabinet, and the bureaucracy. Part Two examines the impact of change on public policy-making, including health, welfare, foreign policy and the environment. There are also readings on Maori politics, conflicting theories of state, the role of the media, and inequality and power.

Description : In Australia and New Zealand, many public projects, programs and services perform well. But these cases are consistently underexposed and understudied. We cannot properly ‘see’—let alone recognise and explain—variations in government performance when media, political and academic discourses are saturated with accounts of their shortcomings and failures, but are next to silent on their achievements. Successful Public Policy: Lessons from Australia and New Zealand helps to turn that tide. It aims to reset the agenda for teaching, research and dialogue on public policy performance. This is done through a series of close-up, in-depth and carefully chosen case study accounts of the genesis and evolution of stand-out public policy achievements, across a range of sectors within Australia and New Zealand. Through these accounts, written by experts from both countries, we engage with the conceptual, methodological and theoretical challenges that have plagued extant research seeking to evaluate, explain and design successful public policy. Studies of public policy successes are rare—not just in Australia and New Zealand, but the world over. This book is embedded in a broader project exploring policy successes globally; its companion volume, Great Policy Successes (edited by Paul ‘t Hart and Mallory Compton), is published by Oxford University Press (2019).
