Event description

Description

The Centre for Federal Studies at the University of Kent is convening a conference on ‘Devolution in England: international perspectives, politics and policy ideas after Brexit’ on 20-21 June 2017 in Canterbury. The Centre is delighted to convene this conference together with the Canada-based Forum of Federations, the James Madison Charitable Trust and the Federal Trust.

We are gathering a group of leading politicians like yourself, as well as senior academics and influential policy-makers to reflect on the emerging federal shape of the United Kingdom and in particular on how to devolve power to England and its constituent parts – towns, cities and counties. Our aim is to draw on cutting-edge research and experience of federal devolution in countries such as Canada, Germany or Switzerland in order to formulate fresh policy ideas.

Among the confirmed speakers are

Phillip Blond (ResPublica)

Thibaud Bodson (Free University Berlin)

Vernon Bogdanor (KCL)

Jonathan Carr-West (LGiU)

Rupak Chattopadhyay (Forum of Federations)

César Colino (St Antony’s, Oxford & Open University, Spain)
