Video library of UK constitutional reform conversations now live
A ‘packed programme of excellent panels’ featuring key UK policy-makers, including members of Government and Parliament, academics and policy experts, came together last month to discuss the Government’s constitutional reforms.
The knowledge exchange conference on Johnson’s Constitutional Reform Agenda was co-organised by the Department of Politics & International Relations at the University of Oxford, the Constitution Unit at UCL, and UK in a Changing Europe (UKICE).
The online event brought together politicians, policy experts and academics to discuss the government’s progress so far, and what lies ahead.
Over two days the conference explored some of the most consequential constitutional questions before us at this time - from devolution and the future of the union to the review of the Fixed Term Parliaments Act.
Speakers included Lord Chancellor, Robert Buckland, QC MP; Kate O’Regan, Director of the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, Oxford; Lord McLoughlin, Chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Review of the FTPA; Lord Faulks QC, Chair of the Independent Review of Administrative Law; John Pullinger, Chair of the Electoral Commission; and DPIR Joint Head of Department, Petra Schleiter.
