More about CPAG's 2014 Policy Paper Series

The aim of CPAG's policy paper series, Our Children, Our Choice: Priorities for Policy, is to provide an overview of the situation for many children in New Zealand in the lead up to the 2014 general election and to support the immediate adoption by all political parties of child-focussed policies to reduce child poverty and mitigate its effects.

The 2014 publications recommend changes to current policy around children’s health; early childhood education and care; provision of compulsory education; housing; and family incomes. Each policy paper is authored by experts in their field, and contains links to other resources including audio-visual material
