Progressive Mayors and Urban Social Movements

Can imaginative mayors form progressive governing coalitions that can tackle growing inequality in cities and other social ills?  This is the central question addressed in a new series of articles published by the free online journal Metropolitics.  In his contribution to this series ‘Inclusive Place-Based Leadership: Lesson-Drawing from Urban Governance Innovations in Bristol, UK’ Robin Hambleton outlines a way of conceptualising progressive place-based leadership, and reports on the steps now being taken by Bristol’s Mayor Marvin Rees, and other civic leaders in the city, to test this model in practice.
