The UK vote to leave the EU has profound implications for London. The capital’s economy, government and civil institutions all have close links with the continent, and our workplaces and universities are the most ‘Europeanised’ in the UK.
There is great uncertainty about the course of Brexit negotiations, and the part that London will play in these. With this uncertainty comes a window of opportunity to influence the debate. Centre for London is holding a small roundtable discussion to consider the risks and opportunities facing London. Tony Travers from LSE will lead the Brexit discussion with other attendees including leaders from London government, businesses and civil society.
We will use this event to gather ideas and to identify the critical areas for action. We will publish a short action plan on our website after the event.
