Have your say: Influencing public policy in New Zealand is a straightforward guide for New Zealanders who want to understand how the public policy process works and how they can engage in it. Few people realise that they have the power to influence government policies. Have your say gives practical advice for individuals who want to make their concerns heard, as well as for lobby groups, political activists and community groups. It shows how we all can get involved in shaping government policies that affect everyone. Frances Hughes and Stephanie Calder have extensive policy experience. They have brought together all the essentials in a clear and concise format. This is an excellent resource for professional organisations, undergraduate and graduate students, junior policy analysts and anyone who wants to have their say. First published February 2007.
