LIVERPOOL BEYOND THE BRINK

Wednesday 5 May, 2021: Talk with Prof Michael Parkinson CBE

Liverpool’s turbulent re-invention over the last four decades is the focus for a fascinating talk from University of Liverpool Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Professor Michael Parkinson.

Michael wrote ‘Liverpool on the Brink’ in 1985. His career has been partly devoted to showing how much the city has changed for the better since then. Last year he revisited the work to update the city’s continuing renaissance in ‘Liverpool Beyond the Brink’ 2019.

Michael has published over 100 books, articles and major reports, and lectures extensively nationally and internationally. He has acted as adviser on urban affairs to the European Commission, the European Parliament, OECD, EUROCITIES, the Department of Communities and Local Government, the National Audit Office, the House of Commons Select Committees, the Core Cities and a range of cities in the UK and Europe. He was made Commander of the British Empire for services to urban regeneration in 2007 and Citizen of Honour of Liverpool in 2016.
