The Big Society in a Small Country

This book argues that, far from being an alien, English import, the big society is more Welsh than English. It contends that Wales can certainly add value to the development of big society ideas in practice and at the same time renew its own economic life, identity and traditions. A Foreword is contributed by Lord Griffiths, former Head of the Cabinet Office Policy Unit in Downing Street.

Dan Boucher was the Welsh Conservative Assembly candidate in Swansea East in the 2011 election. Today he works in public affairs at Westminster, also managing a team covering Stormont, Holyrood, Brussels and Strasbourg.
