What have directly elected mayors ever done for us?

Event at The Foundation, central Bristol, 6/11/19, 6pm

There are now 25 directly elected mayors in the UK, with the prospect of more to come. Bristol now has two directly elected mayors, one who heads Bristol City Council, and another who leads the West of England combined authority. Drawing on research conducted locally, nationally, and internationally, this interactive event will advance understanding of the impact of the introduction of directly elected mayors in English local government. It includes the following speakers:

  • Arianna Giovannini, Institute for Public Policy Research and De Montfort University
  • Baroness Barbara Janke, Member of the House of Lords and former Leader, Bristol City Council
  • Alessandro Sancino, The Open University, and former politician
  • David Sweeting, University of Bristol
  • Chair: Thom Oliver, University of the West of England

This event is free to attend but booking is required. Please register here, via eventbrite.

‘What have directly elected mayors done for us?’ is one of a series of events organised under Thinking Futures, which shares and celebrates research undertaken in the University of Bristol’s Faculty of Social Sciences and Law.
