Devolution across the UK is continually evolving and this year marks an historic twenty years since the establishment of the devolved institutions across the UK. We’ll start this Devolution Discovery session by looking at the history of devolution in the UK over those years and what it means for civil servants today.
We’ll explore the complexities surrounding the devolution settlements in all parts of the UK and consider how EU Exit is changing the way devolution works in practice. It will give you a real sense of why devolution matters, the current challenges driving our work and the role that civil servants will play in shaping devolution and governance across the UK in the coming years.
Speakers from Welsh Government and the Cabinet Office will share their experiences and insights on Devolution.
