What was your favourite Policy Forum Pod episode of the year? On this final podcast of 2019, we put on our festive jumpers and gather around the Christmas tree in our podcast cupboard to look at our presenters’, and some of our listeners’ favourite episodes.
In this week’s Policy Forum Pod, we are joined in the studio by Helen Sullivan to discuss urban decline – what it means, how it happens, and what policymakers need to look out for when making plans to revitalise urban areas.
Policy Forum has marked its fifth birthday with a fresh look, new layout, and a renewed focus. But the site’s commitment to showcasing the best analysis of the region’s policy challenges remains, Quentin Grafton and Martyn Pearce write.
On this special Policy Forum Pod, our Great Green Debate dream team returns to the arena to field the remaining questions from our live-event audience, tackling the politicisation of climate change, how communities can make a difference, and the role of peaceful disruptive protest in changing policy.
On this episode of Policy Forum Pod, we ask an expert panel on economics, political marketing and leadership, and citizen engagement, to tackle the troubles with political participation. From protests on the one hand to complete disengagement on the other, our panel give their recommendations on how to get politicians to lend you their ears.
