The welfare state today( Book )

3 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays in this volume originated in a course called Law and Social Policy ... at the Victoria University of Welliington in 1976. The course was offered to students in the Master of Public Policy programme and to students taking the LL.M ... There are two major themes in the essays. The first is concerned with policy formation. Who made the policy? How did they do it? What were the competing considerations? What pressures were at work on the policy-makers? The second theme concerns the merit of the policies themselves. What is the aim of a particular policy? Can the aim be accomplished better in another way? Does the policy in practice achieve the aim to which it is directed? ..." -- Geoffrey Palmer, Preface

A constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand by G. W. R Palmer( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 67 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

Towards democratic renewal : ideas for constitutional change in New Zealand by G. W. R Palmer( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 2016, Sir Geoffrey Palmer and Andrew Butler proposed and published a written, codified constitution for Aotearoa New Zealand. Since then the authors have travelled the country, discussing with the public the nature of New Zealand's identity and where the country is headed. After considering their conversations and formal submissions, this second book - with its revised proposal for a codified constitution - is the product of a year in development. Towards Democratic Renewal reinforces Palmer and Butler's argument for a robust and democratic framework that will safeguard our political system against future challenges, from climate change to earthquakes, 'post-truth' politics and surveillance. This clear, revised constitution defines and entrenches government accountability and transparency, protects the rights of our peoples and tangata whenua, and offers transformative steps to uphold the sovereignty and integrity of Aotearoa New Zealand"--Publisher information
