The podcasts from the latest Policy Provocations lectures are now available.
The informed debates celebrate Liverpool’s year of City of Radicals and include talks by Lord Whitty, outgoing Chair of Consumer Focus and Lord Adonis, Director for Institute for Government.
In his lecture titled Can Finance be fair and does it even matter? Lord Whitty talked about the state of financial exclusion today and why it matters and asked how effective recent measures to fight financial exclusion have been for the individual and whether financial inclusion can help build a fairer society and stronger communities.
Lord Adonis led a panel debate entitled Mayor or Nightmare: what would an elected mayor mean for the Liverpool City Region, was a special addition to the series which was particularly relevant and timely. A date for a referendum on whether Liverpool should have a directly elected Mayor was announced just a week prior to the event. The referendum will take place on Thursday 3 May 2012 and the topic has been, and will continue to be, widely debated.
