How to make government accountable

Venue: Institute for Government

Date: 15 Oct 2018

Synopsis: Weak accountability leads to government failures or tragedies that affect the public – so what can be done to strengthen it?


The Institute for Government invites you to the launch of its report Accountability in modern government - recommendations for change, based on a year-long consultation and input from a high-profile advisory group.

To discuss the findings, our panel will include:

  • • Rt Hon Dame Margaret Hodge MP, Labour MP for Barking, former Chair of the Commons Public Accounts Committee
  • • Sir Richard Mottram, Visiting Professor at the LSE, former Permanent Secretary
  • • Jonathan Slater, Permanent Secretary at the Department for Education

The report will be introduced by Benoit Guerin, Senior Researcher at the Institute for Government, and the event will be chaired by Emma Norris, Programme Director at the Institute for Government.

There will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
