Project Constitutional Review is the Institute’s latest project, and seeks to build capacity so that New Zealanders – in particular youth between the ages of 18–25 – can engage with the Constitutional Advisory Panel in an informed and considered manner. The outcome of this referendum, as well as any subsequent review into or referendum on our voting system, will have wide-ranging implications for New Zealand’s future constitutional arrangements. Come along tonight and hear some of New Zealand’s great political minds debate the future of our voting system!
