I joined a round-table discussion last week with the PM, and used it to highlight the PM’s support for the Holocaust Commission. The Liberal Judaism website story recognises David Cameron’s and Mick Davis’s contribution.

Citizens UK is an interesting movement which the PM has positively engaged with throughout his time in office, often on issues that are difficult for all the main political parties. I thought it particularly important that we can show how different faith groups can work together on social action, including support for Holocaust education.

Reflection as a “strategic practitioner” in cross-sector collaboration? Organised citizen participation gives cross-sector collaboration depth, breadth and impact. It can reach parts that elected government and parliamentary democracy alone cannot reach because it is so focused on changing dynamics top down, ground up and across interest groups, and can find a constructive way to give expression to a wider social base, speaking truth to power.
