Centre for Local Policy Studies Summer School

21st Jun 2010 - 12:00am

Wychwood Park Hotel, Crewe

Reflecting Back, Looking Forward

The challenges ahead for public policy and community empowerment in a new political era.

With a general election heralding a growing potential of political and administrative change, this summer school asks what arethe likely impacts of political change – not just on those who manage public service delivery, but also on the very people that depend on them. 

The summer school allows participants to explore the key issues and solutions to managing change effectively in a post election and post Equality Bill era. This includes an open public debate, Balancing the Books: Public Policy, Financial Crisis and Human Rights in a New Political Context on 21st June.

Speakers include Barry Quirk, Chief Executive of Lewisham Council and author of the Quirk Review; Sir Bert Massie, founding commissioner of the Equality and Human Rights Commission; Katie Ghose, Director of the British Institute of Human Rights; Karen Chouhan, Equanomics UK.
