- This application is for foundational research needed to inform a Tasmanian constitutional law reform project. The Tasmanian' Constitution' Act 1934 (the Constitution) is, ostensibly, the fundamental law of the state and the source of rules for its legal governance. However, Tasmanias Constitution is extremely limited in this respect. It is a largely skeletal document, which does not fully describe the constitution of the state or its legal and governance system. A number of its provisions have been repealed without replacement, or are insufficiently specific about important matters of Law and government. This has resulted in constitutional uncertainties and culminated in constitutional crises. Equally concerning is a general lack of awareness of, and engagement with, the Constitution amongst the legal and general community. That is probably not least because the constitution fails to articulate any clear statement about the shared heritage, values and priorities that Tasmanians consider important guides toGood government in the state.
