Policy Matters podcast: Is British democracy broken?

Hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson talk to Nadine Smith, UK Director of the Centre for Public Impact.

Franz and Matt begin by asking Nadine about the mission of the Centre for Public Impact and how they look to influence policymakers and improve government. The conversation considers the problems that arise when public service provision is marketized and driven by performance targets and league tables, and how many systems might be redesigned to be more responsive to the needs of citizens.

Nadine, Franz and Matt then go on to discuss the possibilities for greater citizen involvement in decision-making - and the ways in which we could potentially introduce more deliberative democracy in the UK.

About the Centre for Public Impact

The Centre for Public Impact is a not-for-profit founded by Boston Consulting Group. Believing that governments can and want to do better for people, we work side-by-side with governments—and all those who help them—to reimagine government, and turn ideas into action, to bring about better outcomes for everyone. We champion public servants and other changemakers who are leading this charge and develop the tools and resources they need, like our Public Impact Fundamentals, so we can build the future of government together.
