Devolution in England: International Perspectives, Politics, and Policy Ideas

20 – 21 June 2017, Woolf College, University of Kent Canterbury, UK

The Centre for Federal Studies at the University of Kent is convening a conference
on ‘Devolution in England: international perspectives, politics and policy ideas after
Brexit’ on 20-21 June 2017 in Canterbury. The Centre is delighted to convene this
conference together with the Canada-based Forum of Federations, the James
Madison Charitable Trust and the Federal Trust. We are gathering a group of
leading politicians as well as senior academics and influential policy-makers to
reflect on the emerging federal shape of the United Kingdom and in particular on
how to devolve power to England and its constituent parts – towns, cities and
counties. Our aim is to draw on cutting-edge research and experience of federal
devolution in countries such as Canada, Germany or Switzerland in order to
formulate fresh policy ideas.
