In September the Constitution Unit convened a Citizens’ Assembly to engage in detailed, reflective and informed discussions about what the UK’s post-Brexit relations with the European Union should be. 50 members of the public – carefully selected to reflect the diversity of the UK’s population – met over two weekends in Manchester. They learned about the options for Brexit, heard from a wide range of experts and campaigners, and deliberated before proceeding to a series of votes on what form Brexit should take. In this seminar the organisers explain the Assembly’s procedures and conclusions, and two of the UK’s leading Brexit experts reflect on the Assembly’s significance.
