Abstract

This report is based on work conducted by the Political Studies Association Research Commission - Examining the impact of ‘informal governance’ on devolution to England’s cities. It has explored the impact of informal governance on both the effectiveness of decision making around the recent devolution deals in England and its impact on democracy. The report’s findings are based on an in-depth literature review and semi-structured interviews with key actors involved in the devolution deal process. It concludes that the devolution agenda offers a real opportunity to significantly transform the way England is governed. However, devolution to English cities is not sustainable without greater transparency and legitimacy in decision making.
