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

LDN.3.23, Loughborough University London


This one-day workshop will 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, and ‘the City’. As a result, a great deal remains to be said and researched about what Brexit means for London and Londoners. This one-day workshop brings together academics and members of London’s political, business, media and civil society communities to discuss London and Brexit.
