Do events since 23 June 2016 strengthen or weaken the case for the United Kingdom adopting a written, codified Constitution?

  • Naseem Khan

Abstract

This article discusses the UK Government’s proposals to adopt a codified Constitution in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland after the Brexit Referendum of 2016. It discusses the reasons behind the lack of support for a codified Constitution, weighing up arguments for and against. The article concludes that although a codified Constitution may provide greater certainty, without recognition of the theoretical doctrines and concepts that form the current constitutional framework, a codified Constitution would be administratively unworkable.
