Citizens' Assembly on Brexit: what kind of Brexit do people want?

13 December 2017

In September the Constitution Unit convened a Citizens' Assembly to engage in detailed, reflective and informed discussions about what the UK's post-Brexit relations with the European Union should be. 50 members of the public - carefully selected to reflect the diversity of the UK's population - met over two weekends in Manchester. Its findings were presented at this seminar.

This seminar was co-organised with the Centre for the Study of Democracy, University of Wesminster.
