What Canada can learn from New Zealand on electoral reform.

Activity: Engagement case studiesCommunity


A contribution to Canadian knowledge and debate on electoral reform based on my research publications on New Zealand democracy.

This activity is complex because it involves the collection, explanation, interpretation, and presentation of diverse and contested theoretical ideas. It is complex because it translates theoretically difficult concepts into easily understandable terms for a non-specialist audience and applies them to questions of contemporary public policy. It is complex because it draws on ideas developed through my research published over several years. This means that time and effort cannot be quantified with precision but that it is, nevertheless, substantial. The diversity of end-users is evident in the number of readers across at least five jurisdictions and the engagement plans and briefings occurred with the commissioning editor.
