Darwin Building, UCL, Gower Street, London
This year the lecture, in our centenary year, will be given by Professor Tony Travers. The debate on who and how we are governed is taking the political centre stage not only in Scotland but also in Irish, Welsh and English cities and areas. Professor Travers will discuss future trends in city and county governance and how those might develop and give an expert insight in what they might mean for citizens.
Professor Travers is director of LSE London, a research centre at the London School of Economics. He is also a professor in the LSE’s Government Department. He has published a number of books on cities and government, including Failure in British Government The Politics of the Poll Tax (with David Butler and Andrew Adonis), Paying for Health, Education and Housing How does the Centre Pull the Purse Strings (with Howard Glennerster and John Hills) and The Politics of London: Governing the Ungovernable City.
Professor Travers regularly broadcasts and writes for the national press, including The Guardian, The Evening Standard, The Independent, the Financial Times and The Times.
The lecture, hosted by UCL, will begin at 7pm and will be followed by a drinks reception. Registration from 6:30pm.
Tickets are £10 including VAT, £8 concession and limited student tickets are available.
The lecture is once again generously supported by Dalia Lichfield. The lecture will be followed by a short reception.
