Academic article published

The work that the Bristol Civic Leadership Project team has been undertaking is contributing to academic debates on city leadership. An article by Robin Hambleton and David Sweeting has appeared in the journal Public Money & Management, in a themed issue on directly elected mayors alongside contributions on Germany, Australia and New Zealand, and other English cities. The article, called ‘Innovation in urban political leadership. Reflections on the introduction of a directly-elected mayor in Bristol, UK’, draws on data gathered before the introduction of the mayoral system in the city.

The issue is available via academic subscription on this link.
