Sample text

In 1996 the Schick Report was commissioned to provide a review of the public sector reforms. The review produced a mixed report on the success of the reforms at time when there was growing criticism of the public sector’s role in the implementation of the globalisation framework (Kelsey, 1993, 1996). The Fifth Labour government in 2001 instituted a Review of the Centre that identified three priorities for change as being: a better-integrated, people-focussed service delivery; reducing fragmentation and improving the alignment of public services; and enhancing the people and culture in the state sector (Ministers of State Services and Finance, 2001).

1). There is an aspect of New Zealand’s notion of the state that is fundamental to its legal and constitutional structure but is often not recognised and that is the notion of the Crown. Although the Crown is often seen as a fig leaf to disguise the nature of political power residing in the state, McLean (2008) makes a powerful case for recognition of the fact the Crown affects all aspects of the state and its relationship with the people (2008, pp. 35, 37). Any change in the nature of the state, such as a move to becoming a republic, or moving to a closer relationship with Australia, would require a legal disengagement of some complexity, including a clarification of the rights and obligations under the Treaty of Waitangi.

The jury is out over whether it will succeed in finding that balance, and history would advise that it is a struggle that has been forever with New Zealand and will remain so. New Zealanders have always had a strong sense of their own identity while embracing that of others. They have also had a strong belief and confidence in their ability to influence events that affect them and exercised that confidence through the political system. Whether that belief and confidence will be enough in the future, time will tell.
