Research & Ideas

London’s success depends on the city tackling the huge challenges that have come with 25 years of rapid growth. Our research focuses on the issues that matter to Londoners, now and in the future.


London’s population has grown and changed dramatically in recent years. We look behind the headlines at the social and civic issues facing the capital, including changing patterns of wealth, poverty and opportunity, civil society, education, crime, cohesion, and well-being.

Governance & Public Services

With public spending facing further cuts, our research explores the challenges for London’s governance and its wider public sector. How can public services cope with rising demands? How can we create more effective, responsive and innovative services? Could further fiscal devolution help tailor London’s public services to the capital’s needs?
