By Stephens, Murdoch
In 2013, Murdoch Stephens began a campaign to double New Zealand's refugee quota. Inspired by his time living in Aleppo, Syria, over the next five years he built the campaign into a mainstream national movement - one that contributed to the first growth in New Zealand's refugee q...uota for thirty years. Doing Our Bit is an insider's account of political campaigning in New Zealand. It tells the story of how strongly held convictions about New Zealand's refugee policy were turned into a public campaign which helped create significant policy change. This BWB Text is essential reading for anyone interested in grassroots campaigning or how political change happens in New Zealand.Read more
