The Constitution Unit


Constitutional Futures

This book sets out to forecast what the UK’s constitution will look like in ten years’ time. Starting with the 11 constitutional Bills passed in 1997-98, the book analyses how these will affect the UK’s constitutional structure, and examines in detail the further reforms that will be required to ensure that the new constitutional settlement beds down. The Unit has joined with a group of leading experts, who have worked closely together on the project. As a result the chapters are tightly interwoven so that the cumulative and interactive effects of these changes is considered across the whole field of reform. The clear message of this book is that the constitutional reform programme will acquire its own momentum, and will have far reaching consequences, some of which the government does not intend.
