About us

The Constitutional Commission

The Constitutional Commission is a three-person commission established under section 118 of the new Cayman Islands Constitution. This Commission has a three-fold remit of advising government on questions concerning constitutional status and development; promoting public understanding and awareness of the constitution and its values, and publishing reports, papers and other documents on any constitutional matters affecting the Cayman Islands. In broad terms, this Commission may be said to combine the functions of an advisory body with those of a think tank on constitutional matters.

Our Policies and Procedures

The Commissions Secretariat:

The purpose of the Commissions Secretariat is to provide research, analytic and policy support to six independent constitutionally and legislatively established Commissions. These include the Constitutional Commission, the Human Rights Commission, the Commission for Standards in Public Life, the Judicial and Legal Services Commission, the Anti-Corruption Commission and the Civil Service Appeals Commission. Support to the Commissions is conducted in a manner which shows professional integrity, confidentiality regarding information being handled, political neutrality, and sensitivity to the special needs of the public.

Deborah Bodden (seated on right) leads a team that focuses on providing the research and administrative support required by the Commission. Established under the Deputy Governor's Office, the Commissions Secretariat deploys a "joint services" approach to those it serves in order to minimise costs in the current fiscal climate.
