Crowdsourcing a written constitution

Neatly timed to coincide with the start of a new academic year, when up and down the country students of law and politics will be discussing the relative merits of a written constitution, the London School of Economics Institute of Public Affairs today launched a project designed to crowdsource the content of a written constitution for the UK. Through a website and a range of social media including Twitter and Facebook, the project aims to stimulate debate about what values should be enshrined in a British constitution and what principles should underpin it, and seek comments and suggestions from the public. The aim is to draft a document to be unveiled to coincide with the 800 anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta in 2015.
