On November 13, 2021, the University of Nebraska College of Law convened four panels of experts to discuss direct democracy in Nebraska. The articles appearing in this issue of the Nebraska Law Review are a result of that symposium. These articles are one part of the larger project. A video recording of the symposium is available on You-Tube < https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0CPaTiZ1Ng >, and subsequent work will be connected to the project’s website.

This brief introduction situates the articles appearing here within the larger project in three parts. Part II describes the events that necessitated the symposium, focusing on uncertainty attending the single-subject rule for Nebraska constitutional amendments proposed through the initiative process. Part III recounts the panels and associated works. Part IV addresses the work yet to be done.
