City Horizons with Bruce Katz

Cities in the Age of Populism

In this talk, Bruce Katz explored the rise of cities in the age of populism

Event starts at 6pm on 9 April 2018 at The Shard, London, SE1 9SG

For the first 2018 City Horizons we were delighted to be joined by Bruce Katz, former Centennial Scholar at the Brookings Institution, who will be discussing his latest book The New Localism written with the late Jeremy Nowak.

Set in the context of rising populism and rejectionism in Western political systems, The New Localism explores how cities are at the vanguard when it comes to finding innovative locally-led solutions to issues that have long been ignored by national governments.

In his talk, Bruce explored some of the key themes emerging from the book, and discussed what opportunities this new era of localism offers the UK in the context of ever increasing political polarisation, and the fallout of Brexit.
