Event description

Description

Brexit continues to be the central controversy in British politics. Not only has it divided the public, it has brought key aspects of the UK constitutional settlement into doubt. Recent months have been dominated by stories of parliament seeking to "seize control' from the executive, and of a Prime Minister seeking to prorogue parliament to force through a 'no deal' Brexit – even bringing into question the role of the Queen. The Constitution Unit's work has focused on many topics central to the Brexit debates: including the conduct of the 2016 referendum, the prospects for a further referendum or a citizens assembly on Brexit, and the proper place and power of parliament.

This session will include a panel of expert commentators reflecting on recent controversies and possible ways forward, followed by audience discussion.
