UK Cities: Coffee and Conversation with Liverpool’s Chief of Staff
England is in the midst of a major political shift on the municipal level. The creation of metro city governments are ushering in the first wave of directly elected mayors, including Mayor Joe Anderson of Liverpool.
This fundamental change in the way cities operate is reviving the importance of local government and changing the power dynamic in English politics. Is this a response to Sottish nationalism? Has this shift in government structure been seen in other European countries? How is this changing the role of mayors and cities in England?
Join the Initiative on Cities for coffee and a conversation with Tris Brown, Chief of Staff to the Mayor of Liverpool, UK.
The conversation will be moderated by IOC Director and Professor of Political Science Graham Wilson. It is free and open to the public.
