London calling Brexit: Studying London and Londoners in a Changing UK, Europe and World

This event has already taken place.

Join Loughborough University London and Centre for London’s Dr Jack Brown, for a one-day workshop to examine the effect of Brexit on the UK’s capital city and the effect of London on Brexit.

Despite being the UK and England’s capital, a diverse metropolis of 9 million people, the UK’s economic heart, and a leading European and global city, London is often viewed through a lens of Westminster, Whitehall, ‘the City’, or ‘the metropolitan elite’. As a result, a great deal remains to be said and researched about what Brexit means for London and Londoners.

This one-day workshop, organised by the Institute for Diplomacy and International Governance, Loughborough University, will together academics and members of London’s political, business, media and civil society communities to discuss London and Brexit.

VENUE: Loughborough University London, Here East, Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London, E15 2GZ

Details of how to reach Loughborough University London will be emailed to all participants. Directions can also be found here.
