Statement on religious diversity

Statement on religious diversity

Religious diversity in Aotearoa New Zealand was produced by the New Zealand Human Rights Commission in 2007. Its cover design shows the logo of the commission's Diversity Action Programme – a fern with each frond representing a different culture. The second edition of the statement, published in 2009, was introduced by Prime Minister John Key and endorsed by a wide range of religious and interfaith bodies.
