Can there really still be a place for monarchy in democratic societies? This talk compares European and other monarchies, and considers whether monarchy can survive as a constitutional form.
Dr Bob Morris, Constitution Unit, University College London, is a former Home Office civil servant and co-editor with Professor Robert Hazell of The Role of Monarchy in Modern Democracy: European monarchies compared (Hart, 2020).
This talk was delivered as part of the Jubilee Talks series, part of Causeway Coast and Glens Borough Council Museum Services programme to mark the platinum jubilee of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. This programme has received financial support from The Executive Office as part of the District Councils Good Relations Programme and supports the T:BUC strategy (Together Building a United Community).
