The Independent Commission on Referendums: who, what, why and how

Sponsored by Elin Jones AM, Presiding Officer for the National Assembly for Wales

Wales Governance Centre and the Constitution Unit

Friday 23rd February 2018, 11:00-13:00, Media Briefing Room, Senedd

In October the Constitution Unit launched an Independent Commission on Referendums, to review the role of referendums in British democracy and consider how their rules and practice could be improved. The Commission is meeting monthly, and intends to report in the summer of 2018. At this seminar the chair and members of the Commission will discuss their task, how they are setting about it, and the input they need from other experts and the public to ensure the Commission draws on the widest possible evidence base. They will make particular reference to recent Welsh experience of referendums.

Speakers:

Sir Joe Pilling, Chair of the Commission

Dr Alan Renwick, Research Director for the Commission

Rt. Hon Dame Cheryl Gillan DBE MP, Former Secretary of State for Wales and Commission member

Professor Laura McAllister, Professor of Public Policy at Cardiff University's Wales Governance Centre


We look forward to welcoming you to this event.

Ym mis Hydref lansiodd Uned y Cyfansoddiad Gomisiwn Annibynnol ar Refferenda, i adolygu rôl refferenda yn nemocratiaeth Prydain ac i ystyried sut gellid gwella eu rheolau a'u hymarfer. Mae’r Comisiwn yn cwrdd yn fisol, ac yn bwriadu adrodd yn haf 2018. Yn y seminar hwn bydd y Cadeirydd ac aelodau'r Comisiwn yn trafod eu tasg, sut maent yn mynd ati, a’r mewnbwn y mae arnynt ei angen gan arbenigwyr eraill a’r cyhoedd i sicrhau bod y Comisiwn yn tynnu ar y sylfaen ehangaf bosibl o dystiolaeth. Byddant yn cyfeirio’n benodol at brofiad diweddar Cymru o refferenda.
