On Devo launched in momentous week for Manchester
(9 July 2015)
A limited edition, printed collection of analysis and ideas on devolution, named ‘On Devo’, has been produced by policy@manchester in collaboration with cities@manchester.
Staff from across the Faculty have contributed to the project, including Professor Francesca Gains, Professor Diane Coyle and Professor Colin Talbot, all from the School of Social Sciences, and Professor Kieran Walshe, from Manchester Business School.
The booklet brings together nine of the most essential blogs on devolution that have appeared on Manchester Policy Blogs – explaining and questioning its impact on the region’s politics, the economy, health and social care and immigration, as well as examining the role the new mayor will play.
It has been sent to the desks of 101 of the city-region’s most influential leaders, influencers and power-brokers during a significant week for ‘DevoManc’. An electronic version has already been downloaded nearly 2,000 times and has been widely talked about on Twitter using the hashtag #OnDevo.
On Devo showcases the important contribution that our academic colleagues are making to the devolution debate, regionally and nationally.
