This event, hosted by UK think tank the Centre for London will look at the role of Mayor of London over its 20-year lifespan, and where it might go next.
This event will also mark the launch of CFL’s new book co-written with Professor Tony Travers, ‘London’s Mayor at 20: Governing a global city in the 21st century’.
This year London’s Mayor and London Assembly turned 20. The book, released to mark this anniversary, combines expert analysis with first-hand testimony from those closely involved in the mayoralty’s operation to date. It appraises the mayoralty’s strengths and weaknesses across the range of policy areas for which it is responsible.
At a time of great uncertainty for the future of the mayoralty, its autonomy, and its relationship with central government, both the book and this event will look at how the role of Mayor of London has evolved over its 20-year lifespan, and where it might go next.
The event will be a panel discussion, introduced by Centre for London’s Jack Brown, and chaired by Professor Tony Travers. The panel will feature prominent business, local government and civil society voices who will discuss the successes and challenges of London’s mayoralty to date, and what might come next for the capital, its people, and its governance.Click here to book your place
