Westminster and the World: Commonwealth and Comparative Insights for Constitutional Reform

Research output: Book/ReportBook


With the United Kingdom’s constitutional future under intense debate, comparative constitutional scholar W. Elliot Bulmer considers what might be learned from Westminster-derived constitutions around the world.

This insightful book examines the principles of Westminster Model constitutions and shows how the lessons learned from these constitutions might be applied to the United Kingdom’s constitutional issues such as the protection of human rights, the relationship between the Crown and Parliament, and the territorial distribution of power. For politics and law students, concerned citizens and anyone with an interest in constitutional change, this is a comprehensive review of constitutions from around the world and a bold re-imagining of what a future written constitution for the United Kingdom might look like
