Four of the five main UK political parties have voiced support for a constitutional convention based on popular participation. But what form should such a convention take? There are a variety of possible models and some would work much better than others. This presentation will set out criteria that can be used to evaluate the options and then draw on evidence from recent reform processes - notably in Canada, Iceland, and Ireland - to see which options are more or less likely to meet those criteria in the UK.
