A UCL debate on the AV referendum
Monday 11 April 2011, 6.00pm
The UK faces its first national referendum for over 30 years and has an unprecedented opportunity to change the voting system and reshape the future political landscape. The referendum also raises profound questions about electoral reform in the UK.
This debate will provide an opportunity to discuss the arguments underpinning electoral reform and the AV system and to hear speakers from both sides of the argument, as well as insights from an expert panel.
Have your say: questions from the audience will be a key feature of this event.
