IS London Calling Brexit panel, 8 November.

What Brexit means for London and London means for Brexit will be a crucial aspect of the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. Brexit could shape the future of the City, affect the lives of millions of Londoners, and change the place of London as both the UK’s capital city and a world city. Dr Tim Oliver will launch his new book Understanding Brexit: A Concise Introduction with a panel discussion about Brexit and London.
There will be a reception between 6-7.00pm, with the panel starting at 7pm.
Dr Tim Oliver (Loughborough University London)
Dr Scott James (King’s College London)
Dr Yu Jie (Chatham House)
Matt Scott (Thames Ward Community Project)
Cllr Carole Williams (Cabinet Member for Employment, Skills and Human Resources, London Borough of Hackney)
Chair: Prof. Helen Drake (Loughborough University London)

London Calling Brexit

I'm editing a new series that launched today on the LSE's Brexit blog. London Calling Brexit looks at what Brexit means for London and London means for Brexit. Lots more posts to follow this one on issues ranging from the city to citizens, the constitution to campaigners.

London is Falling Down on Mental Health: The Fight Against Mental Ill Health in a Global City

I recorded a short film for BBC Sunday Politics London on mental ill health in London. I ask if London is bad for your mental health and, if so, what can be done about it.

You can watch the film and studio discussion on the BBC Sunday Politics website and read a post based on the film's script on the Loughborough University London blog.

I'm not sure where my new title of 'London Policy & Governance expert' came from! I'm still a Senior Lecturer at Loughborough University London.
