INSIDE BRIEFING with Institute for Government

Institute for Government

How can we make government work more effectively? What are Brexit and the current political tumult doing to our institutions? Is Britain's Constitution able to withstand the strains of 21st Century social, political and technical change? What needs to change in our system of government – and how can we change it? Find out in the weekly podcast from Britain’s leading governmental think tank, where we analyse the latest events in politics and explain what they mean. Every week on INSIDE BRIEFING, IfG Director Bronwen Maddox welcomes experts, analysts and special guests for a free-ranging conversation on what makes government work – and how to fix it when it doesn’t.

  • Kyiv

    This episode merits no stars at all - Kyiv spelt wrong & a joke about chicken in the title? What this - bad parody of a Sun headline? Really low standard for a what is usually a quality series.
