Conference on a Referendum on Housing in Ireland
The UCD Centre for Constitutional Studies recently hosted a two-day conference with the Housing Commission on a referendum on housing in Ireland.
The Housing Commission is an independent commission that has been tasked by government with bringing forward proposals on the wording for a referendum on housing.
The conference formed part of the fact finding and orientation stage of the Commissions work, serving as a listening exercise to examine the complex constitutional questions arising and the various proposals that have been made made around the potential wording for an amendment to the Constitution.
The conference was a hybrid event featuring international and domestic experts and which was live-streamed to facilitate public participation in its discussions.
