The Constitution Unit


Constitutions and Constitution-Making

While much of the work of the Constitution Unit focuses on particular parts of the institutional structure of politics, some issues cut across those points and relate to constitutional structures – and the mechanisms through which those structures change – in the round.

Several of the Unit’s earliest projects looked at constitutional reform across a broad canvas. Our current projects seek to inform public debate about constitutional principles and the health of democracy and to examine attitudes to democracy in the UK.
