Foundational and Regulatory Conventions: Exploring the Constitutional Significance of Britain's Dependency upon Conventions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Suggests that the tension between the legal and political models of UK constitutionalism can be relieved through the pursuit of a middle course termed "complementary constitutionalism". Argues that the UK constitution can accommodate legal mechanisms of accountability without altering its essentially political character because of its continuing dependency on constitutional conventions. Analyses the nature and function of these conventions.
