Speaker information

Professor Meg Russell, UCL Constitution Unit

Many people dismiss the Westminster parliament as an ineffective 'talking shop', and similar allegations are commonplace about parliaments in other democracies. But based on substantial research Meg Russell argues that Westminster is influential - and almost certainly increasingly so. Her lecture seeks to dispel some common misconceptions about how parliamentary institutions work, in the UK and beyond.
