Moving ministers: what makes a good reshuffle?


This event, hosted by UK think tank The Institute for Government will discuss what makes a good Cabinet reshuffle.

Boris Johnson’s priority was clear when he appointed his first cabinet in 2019: delivering Brexit. Now, months after the UK has left the Brexit transition period, and a year into a global pandemic, the prime minister is reportedly planning to reshuffle his ministerial team.

What should the prime minister be looking for as he plans to reshuffle his cabinet? What lessons can be learnt from previous reshuffles? Who might we see in the next cabinet? And what is it like being a minister during a reshuffle?

Panellists:

Salma Shahformer Special Adviser to Sajid Javid

Ben Riley-SmithPolitical Editor at the Daily Telegraph

The Rt Hon Lord Young of Cookhamformer Leader of the House of Commons and Chief Whip

The event will be chaired by Tim Durrant, Associate Director at the Institute for Government.
