Designing Democracy for the 21st Century

May 10, 6-9pm Committee Room 5, House of Commons, Westminster

Energy is building for a citizens-led convention that looks critically at the present brokenUK constitution and comes forward with proposals for democratic change. Jon Trickett, the shadow minister for the constitutional convention, supports the idea. King’s College, University of London, is drafting a proposal to create and run a convention. Could a convention draft an entirely new constitution or should it recommend reforms? Should Parliament have the final say on a convention's proposals? Come and debate these and other issues with our panel and help build the pressure for substantial change.
