In the first project of its kind, Public Law Project (PLP) has today launched a UK constitutional reform tracker, identifying the wide range of constitutionally significant events happening under the current administration.

The tracker performs three crucial functions:

  • Identifying constitutionally important events under the current government between 24 July 2019 and the present day
  • Promoting understanding of the broader implications of current piecemeal constitutional reforms
  • Highlighting patterns and trends in constitutional reform by government department, UK jurisdiction, type of change, and subject-matter.

At a time of such significant constitutional change, the tracker is an essential resource for anyone interested in the changes happening now and their implications for the future of our constitution and democracy.

This project was finalised with the valuable assistance of Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law, the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights, the Constitution Unit, the Institute for Government, and the UK Administrative Justice Institute.

The tracker will be updated on an ongoing basis, with thoughts and suggestions on increasing its usability and breadth welcome.
