The Constitution Conversation is a chance for all New Zealanders to share their aspirations for their country and what matters to them most about how it's run.


The Constitutional Advisory Panel is seeking submissions from the public about New Zealand’s constitutional arrangements in the first half of 2013.

All New Zealanders including individuals, whānau, groups, schools, community networks, iwi and organisations are welcome to make submissions. The Panel will reflect your views about New Zealand’s constitution in their report to Ministers at the end of the year.

The Panel is interested in hearing your aspirations for New Zealand, to help shape the Panel’s final report.

You can also choose to write about some or all of the topics on the Panel’s terms of reference.

And you may comment on other aspects of New Zealand’s constitution. If there is sufficient interest in a constitutional topic outside the terms of reference, the Panel may report on it.
