What can politics learn from design? Jocelyn will discuss some of the traits, behaviours and attitudes often exhibited by designers, and the inspiration they could provide for those fed up with the dysfunctionality of politics.

Jocelyn Bailey (@JocelynABailey) is a researcher at Westminster think tank Policy Connect, where she runs a stream of activities around design, innovation and manufacturing policy. Her mission is to build up a body of work and an agenda around design policy -- those areas of mutual interest to design and politics -- and over the last four years has revived its discussion in Parliament. Recent publications include the 'Restarting Britain' series, which has looked at the role of design education as a lever for growth, and the application of design to public service reform. Before finding her way into policy she trained as an architect at Cambridge, and is currently finishing an MA in History of Design.

This talk was part of the "Defining Today" session at TEDxOxbridge "Timeless Ideas" in Oxford, England at the Said Business School on June 1, 2013. Find out more about TEDxOxbridge at or on Facebook or Twitter (@tedxoxbridge).

About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
