RSA Replay: People Shaped Localism: Making It Real

a talk in English

Individuals, communities and councils are playing an increasingly important role in shaping their local public services. Our panel will discuss how a dispersal of power and new forms of local engagement are essential in promoting democratic renewal and community resilience.

The UK is in the midst of a 'devolution revolution' - we are witnessing the increasing decentralisation of governance as Westminster grants ever more powers to regional and local bodies. In political debate, the great promise of devolution is said to be economic growth, as exemplified by the birth of the Northern Powerhouse.

However, in the rush for growth, there is a danger of overlooking other measures of success, and thereby squandering the greater social and political opportunities offered by decentralised power.

Economic connectivity without social connectivity is hollow. How can we ensure devolved governance strengthens democracy by delivering a fairer dispersal of power and promoting greater civic engagement? And how can devolution create a localism that is truly 'people shaped', in which decision-making is determined by the character, identity, assets and needs of specific communities?

As the RSA launches its report on the opportunities and challenges of bringing citizens more fully into local service design and governance, we bring together a panel of experts to explore ambitions for locally driven change.

Presidential Debates are a Mess, Here's How To Fix Them

a talk in English

When presidential debates become a media circus, it's the voters who lose. But an alternative debate format would eliminate the kind of candidate-moderator feud that is dominating our political moment. John Donvan is co-author of "In a Different Key: The Story of Autism" (http://goo.gl/5GcQ6w).

Transcript - The public is so politicized that if I were moderating a presidential debate and I were to say to one of the candidates, you know, you’re really off point and you’re not responding, everybody would think that that means I’m on the other guy’s side. And that doesn’t happen in the Intelligence Squared debates. I don’t know why, but the audience recognizes and understands that what I’m trying to do is to protect the integrity of the debate. That if I’m calling somebody for not really debating well, our audience gets it that what I’m trying to do is to make the debate better. Not help one side or the other. I think in the presidential debates the moderators if they don’t interrupt, it’s their fault for letting the debate run off the rails. And if they do interrupt, they get attacked for taking sides. And that’s why I think it’s a sort of no — it’s a very difficult situation. I actually think and we have proposed to the presidential debate commission that they do the debates our way. Have a stated motion, do an Oxford-style debate — at least one time. I would be happy to moderate it. You’re going to debate about for and against this motion. You’re going to be okay with me interrupting. You won’t take it as an insult. You won’t take it as me taking sides. And may the best person win.
