Magna Carta 800 Grant for History of Parliament Conference

The History of Parliament Trust is delighted to announce that The Magna Carta Trust’s 800th Anniversary Commemoration has agreed to provide a grant of £5,000 towards next year’s international conference ‘Making constitutions, building parliaments: constructing representative institutions, 1000-2000’.

The conference will set the foundation of the English and British constitutional tradition alongside that of other jurisdictions elsewhere; it will explore other confrontations between communal traditions and royal powers and how these were expressed and resolved; it will seek to compare the development of the English political tradition with contemporary parallel institutions in Europe, and explore their divergence and/or convergence.

The Magna Carta Trust’s 800th Anniversary Commemoration Committee is charged by the Magna Carta Trust to co-ordinate activities, raise the profile of the anniversary and deliver a number of key national and international aspirations. For more information, visit magnacarta800th.com
