This panel considers how leaders shape policy, respond to crises and engage within ritualised parliamentary settings. Drawing on examples from British political history, contemporary localised governance and comparative leadership aspects of public inquiries, this panel seeks to explore the multifaceted nature of public and political leadership. Accountability and scrutiny of public policy, crisis response and localised governance places leaders and leadership upfront and central, raising questions about the decision making and response in different political settings.
