The Future of London Government

A conference to mark the ten years since the first Mayor of London.

Whether it is the congestion charge or bendy buses, action on climate change or gay rights, the establishment of the Mayor of London has affected the lives of nearly all 7.5 million Londoners.
In 2000 Ken Livingston became the first directly-elected mayor in the UK. Now, ten years since the first inauguration of the Mayor of London, this symposium offers the chance to assess the success of the role and to conjecture as to the future of the governance of Greater London and beyond.
Particular issues to be discussed include how well the first directly elected mayor in British history has worked, whether London could be a model for other cities, and the general problems of governing London, in particular the conflict between London as a whole and the boroughs.
