Democracy Matters

With the support of the Economic and Social Research Council, academics and civil society organisations brought together politicians, regional leaders and the public to debate a range of options for Britain’s constitutional future. Between October and November 2015, two pilot assemblies were run in Sheffield (Assembly North) and Southampton (Assembly South) to ask how new regional powers can be established in a form that is supported by the people who live locally. You can read the full report on this project now.

In November 2016, the Democracy Matters Citizens’ Assembly project won a Democratic Innovation Award at the Political Studies Association Annual Awards in Westminster.
