It is widely acknowledged that the UK is one of the most centralised countries in Europe. At this event, the outgoing Industrial Strategy Council launched its latest research on this issue – and set out what needs to be done to address it.
At this event, we heard in greater detail about a framework for devolving power from central government to sub-national authorities, derived from analysis of the history of devolution in the UK and how that has shaped the current landscape, as well as substantial primary evidence gathered as part of the project.

The event was chaired by Andrew Carter, Chief Executive of Centre for Cities.
