The Institute for Local Government is a research and knowledge exchange partnership which was established to facilitate collaboration between some of the North East’s major public sector institutions and its academic community drawn from the region’s Universities.
This chapter presents a summary and reflection on its roles, activities, funding, outputs and outcomes, operational experience, the problems of long-term sustainability and the lessons that can be drawn from this pioneering initiative in the North East throughout the last decade and the implications for the next decade.
Professor John Mawson served as the Director of the Institute for Local Governance between 2009 and 2019 and wishes to acknowledge, on behalf of the Partnership, the support provided by the ESRC Collaborative Ventures Scheme, the North East Improvement and Efficiency Partnership, and Durham University and its Business School in hosting the Institute. He would also like to acknowledge all those practitioners in the public, private, voluntary and community sectors, his ILG colleagues and the academics from the five North East Universities who enthusiastically engaged in the work of the ILG.
