Our aim in this section is to provide context and information on the Icelandic constitutional processes of 2010 to 2012 and the current efforts to revise the constitution that started in 2018. The DCD’s primary focus is on researching the public’s participation in constitution making and what can be learned from the two Icelandic efforts. An understanding of the 2010 to 2012 constitutional process is not only necessary to understand the challenges current efforts face, but it also offers valuable normative and empirical insights into public consultation, that are relevant to democratic participation in general.
