The English Constitutional Convention (ECC) is a growing coalition of political and non-political organisations who believe that the people of England have a democratic right to participate in, and decide upon, the form of devolution that best suits the needs, sensibilities and majority will of the people living within England.
It is clear that, if the political system is to retain credibility with the people of England, then the voice of her people must be heard and a proper democratic debate around England's future and her nationhood be properly constituted and supported by all those who seek to govern in her name.
The purpose of the English Constitution Convention is to promote the debating and the making of proposals for a consequentially appropriate, just and fair, constitutional settlement for all the people of England, and which protect their principles of justice and liberty.
