Oliver Escobar

Institution: School of Social and Political Science, University of Edinburgh 

I am interested in improving democracy and advancing social justice. My research, teaching and practice are about reinventing politics, rethinking citizen participation, supporting public service reform, and facilitating public dialogue. I am lecturer in public policy at the University of Edinburgh, co-director of What Works Scotland and UK lead for Smart Urban Intermediaries. I bring to Distant Voices immense curiosity and excitement to join a team of change-makers.
