Chatham House conference on devolution, 10 March

Chatham House, the international relations think-tank formerly known as the Royal Institution of International Affairs, is holding a conference on ‘Devolution in a Globalised World’ next Thursday morning, 10 March.  The conference is a half-day affair and will be held at Chatham House on St James’s Square, London SW1.  It will look particularly at financial issues and paradiplomacy (the external linkages of sub-state governments), drawing on experiences from Flanders, Catalonia and Quebec as well as the UK.  The keynote speakers are Sam Hamad, Quebec’s Minister of Transport, and Carwyn Jones, Welsh First Minister.  I’m moderating the financial session, in which the speakers include Ben Thomson, chairman of Reform Scotland, and Benoît Pelletier, Professor of Law at the University of Ottawa and formerly Quebec’s Minister for Intergovernmental Relations.

Full details are available from Chatham House’s website here.  It’s free to attend, and there are still some spaces available – though you do need to register, which you can do online here.
