In early March 2020, when London was starting to think about Mayoral elections – initially due in May 2020 – we organised a short series of roundtables to discuss key policy issues for the City of London. Following the 12-month postponement of all May elections due to Covid, the London Mayoral elections have now been confirmed for 6 May 2021. Therefore, we have decided to resume our series of events to discuss the key issues facing the new Mayor of London after the elections, ranging from leadership, London’s growth to-the levelling up agenda.
These interactive sessions will bring together professionals, academics and the public around presentations and a general discussion.
