Institute of Welsh Affairs Constitutional Convention report

Share this article

The Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) has just launched the final report from their recent public conversation on the future of Wales, the IWA Constitutional Convention.

The report examines the findings from the Convention, which engaged with around 12,000 people across Wales.

It found:

  • Thought around the future of the UK has been ad hoc and reactive. There should be a UK-wide Constitutional Convention to consider the union as a whole.
  • People were generally supportive of further powers for Wales, but there’s a feeling that performance and implementation of existing powers were of greater importance, particularly in education and the economy.
  • We need to be more ambitious. We need a bold economic strategy which identifies new areas in which Wales can excel such as green growth and the digital sector.
  • We need to consider the impact that welfare devolution in other parts of the UK will have on Wales. There is support for exploring different welfare policies however there’s a nervousness about how these will be funded.
