Chair: Craig Calhoun, Director LSE
Dame Tessa Jowell will deliver her inaugural lecture to mark her recent appointment as Professor of Practice with LSE Cities and the Department of Government.
‘Democracy, Decency and Devolution’ will look at two big questions. First, how our politics can reconnect with a disenchanted and sceptical public and the price we pay for a failure to do that. It will then set out the case for devolution to the most local available level as a way of making communities more powerful, against a backdrop of shrinking public expenditure.
