Updated Friday 18th October 2013

Crowdsourcing the UK's constitution.

Constitution UK logo Copyrighted image Icon Copyright: Constitution UK Constitution UK describes itself as "a trailblazing project that invites members of the public to participate in, offer advice on and eventually to draft a new UK constitution through crowdsourcing [...] It is led by LSE’s Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) and Department of Law, together with the LSE Public Policy Group (PPG) and Democratic Audit. It builds on the IPA’s successful and ongoing Imagining One Nation Britain programme, on the Department of Law’s academic knowledge and the specialist excellence of PPG and Democratic Audit".

It was initiated by researchers, scientists & educators and a non-governmental organisation/charity and encourages people to participate through an online platform and special events. Constitution UK is national in orientation and concerned with democracy, politics & representation.

It was launched in October 2013 and ends in June 2015.
