  • With recent referendums in Scotland and Europe, the UK's constitutional relationships have been high on the political and public agenda. Our research on constitutional change investigates the opinions and needs of people who might be particularly affected by any change in the UK's constitutional relationships, such as employers, students and EU migrants. We have looked at public attitudes towards the Scottish referendum and the EU referendum and researched how the outcome of the vote is likely to influence behaviour, for example settlement practices and applications for British citizenship. We actively engage policy makers and the public throughout our research, aiming to inform political debate.

    This research is co-ordinated by Professor David Bell, Professor Derek McGhee, Professor Jakub Bijak and Professor Jane Falkingham.
