Early this year (2022) Democracy Action commissioned the Garrick Professor of Law at the University of Queensland, Professor James Allan, to draft a report on He Puapua. Professor Allan’s analysis - "The radical prescription for undermining democracy and the rule of law" - can be read, watched, or listened to below.
We hope this analysis sparks a national conversation about the future of New Zealand’s constitutional arrangements and is considered in any UNDRIP implementation or realisation plans proposed by the Government.
You can download a copy of his report here.
