Has mayoral governance made a difference in Bristol?

CANCELLED

Tue 17 March 2020,

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED. THE REPORT IS AVAILABLE TO READ HERE.

There’s a lively ongoing national debate about the strengths and weaknesses of the directly elected mayor model of governance.  What benefits does the mayoral model deliver?  What are the drawbacks? Can the mayoral model of place-based leadership be improved?  Or should it be abandoned?

Researchers from Bristol’s two universities have studied these questions and a short policy report on their key findings will be presented by Professor Robin Hambleton, UWE and Dr Thom Oliver, UWE. They will be joined for a panel discussion by social and business entrepreneur Jaya Chakrabarti, MBE.

Sponsored by the Centre for Sustainable Planning and Environments, Faculty of Environment and Technology, UWE Bristol.
