Monarchy, Church and State
Our work in this field began with church and state, looking at the implications of disestablishment. Then In 2016 we published a report about the role and future of the Monarchy. This led on to work on the next accession and coronation, looking in particular at the accession and coronation oaths. Our latest project has been a comparative study of the eight parliamentary monarchies in Europe, starting with a conference, and leading to the publication of an edited book in 2020. And our next project is a comparative study of prerogative powers in Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. We also have a useful list of FAQs on the monarchy. The Constitution Unit’s research in this area is led by Professor Robert Hazell and Dr Bob Morris and falls into the following areas.
