Reviewing constitutions: the role of constitutional conventions10 June 2016
Report published following Constitutional Conversation no. 2 of 6.
A report is now available for this conversation, the second in a series of six conversations on issues of constitutional interest and it was held in the RIA on 28 April 2016. As the Irish Constitution entered its middle age in the late twentieth century, it was subjected to a range of reviews following different approaches: an intensive, one-off analysis by parliamentarians (the Committee on the Constitution, 1967), a comprehensive examination by a committee of experts (the Constitution Review Group, 1996), a series of reviews of specific aspects by all-party joint parliamentary committees (1997-2010), and a detailed study of selected aspects of the constitution by a group made up mainly of randomly selected citizens (the Constitutional Convention 2012-14).
