Devolution in England: International Perspectives, Politics and Policy Idea...
Tue, Jun 20, 2017, 8:30 AM – Wed, Jun 21, 2017, 6:00 PM BST
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.
