In Brazil

Those who’ve noted the relative lack of activity on Devolution Matters in the last week or so may be interested in the reason: I’m presently in Brazil, in connection with the academic collaboration project between Edinburgh University and the Centre for Metropolitan Studies in São Paulo (previously discussed HERE).  I’m giving a fairly general talk about the UK, the ‘Westminster model’ and how the UK is not – contrary to a common view here – really a unitary state.  That will take place later today at the University of São Paulo, and thanks to the work of my hosts at CEM and the British Consulate has attracted some local news coverage (see here and here).

For those interested, the slides from my talk are available HERE.
