Good Ideas from Successful Cities: UK Edition

November 30th, 2012

The latest snapshot of city leadership and innovation in our municipal good practice series is ready! Find stories from the UK from cities large and small – London, Birmingham, Wolverhampton, Hatfield, and Blackburn with Darwen Borough. Whether promoting maternal health or attracting new business opportunities, local governments are addressing important community concerns.

In her foreword to the report, Barrow Cadbury Trust Chief Executive Sara Llewellin explained:

“Regardless of how long they have lived in a city, migrant communities all wish to build a life and make a positive contribution to society, which the projects featured in this UK Snapshot enable them to do. Projects featured in this UK Snapshot demonstrate that migrant communities can contribute to and be part of an active and diverse city life. Cities of Migration reminds us of the best things about living in a city – cultural diversity, tolerance, opportunity and friendship.”

The UK report is the newest addition to our report series on Municipal Leadership on Immigrant Integration. The city-led good practices described in these reports offer a compelling narrative about how local governments are leading the way, using their considerable power and authority to leverage their diversity, unlock opportunity and jump start the economy with immigrant skill, talent and hard work.

The current series of short country “snapshots'” are companion reports to Good Ideas from Successful Cities, and provide a further selection of municipal good practice in comparative perspective. Visit our new Publications page to see the entire publication series.
