Can we govern cities differently?
New Jam & Justice report

Results from ten different projects and a three year project - summary and conclusions, promises and practices


In July, more than sixty people gathered at the Ziferblat event space in Manchester’s Northern Quarter to celebrate the publication of the report, How can we govern cities differently? The promise and practices of co-production. This brings together learning from the Jam and Justice project, action research funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council with additional support from Mistra Urban Futures.

The evening programme included opportunities to hear about the different projects co-initiated by Jam & Justice’s Action Research Collective and chat with members of the Action Research Collective. Catherine Durose welcomed everyone; Beth Perry presented highlights from the key findings; and Liz Richardson chaired a short question-and-answer session as well as introducing three guest speakers.
