Network on the Future of Local Democracy – Meeting 3: Democracy


How can local government make the most of the current situation and build a collective case for meaningful change in how England is governed? LGiU is working with the James Madison Charitable Trust to establish a high level Network made up of local government leaders and chief executives to answer some of the biggest questions we face in 2017 and beyond.

This session will focus on the implications for citizens of devolution, the future of citizenship and its implications for local government.

  • Does devolution make government more or less democratic?
  • Does it allow for a different relationship between citizen and state?
  • How do we ensure any regional structures created as a part of devolution are democratic, open and responsive?
  • How is the relationship between citizen and state changing? How can devolution support this?

This event is free, but invitation only and is open to leaders and chief executives of LGiU member councils. Please do get in touch if you would like to take part. Not sure whether you’re organisation is a member?
