Dr. Diana Stirbu speaks at the launch of the Centre for Public Scrutiny Annual Conference

Dr. Diana Stirbu was one of the four panellists invited to speak at the launch of the Centre for Public Scrutiny Annual Conference on 2 June 2015.

The extremely topical theme of 'Devolution, Austerity and Accountability' incited interesting debates among an audience mainly composed of local government elected representatives, officials, and scrutineers.

In a discussion dominated by the opportunities and challenges presented by devolution in England, Diana brought in an insightful perspective from lessons Scotland and Wales have to offer in terms of adjusting to devolution and ensuring an effective scrutiny system in a multilevel system of governance.
