Welcome to Douglas to Dancing!

Note: this post originally appeared on ‘Douglas to Dancing’, a blog I maintained from 2007-9 on the ACT New Zealand political party. The blog was an extension of the thesis I wrote about the Act Party in 2007, From Douglas to Dancing: explaining the lack of success of ACT New Zealand and evaluating its future prospects (PDF).

Welcome to Douglas to Dancing. The aim of this blog is to provide a forum for discussion and analysis of the ACT New Zealand political party, about which I wrote my Honours dissertation during 2007 at the University of Otago. On these pages I will highlight key findings from my research and comment on ACT’s 2008 election campaign, as well as simply examining anything relating to ACT. In the coming weeks I plan to look at how ACT is using new technology and what has happened to ACT’s MPs, past and present.

For now, I encourage anyone interested in ACT to download the dissertation. To my knowledge it is the first major academic work written on ACT since 1999.
