In a session chaired by Dr Alan Mace (LSE), Antoine Paccoud (LISER) and Patria Roman-Velazquez (Loughborough University/ Latin Elephant) will be discussing how gentrification is impacting contemporary London. 

Our new seminar series London Talks creates a space to exchange knowledge on these changes linking them to LSE’s research. In so doing, we aim to create partnerships with significant London stakeholders and show how research and practice in London link to cities across the world.

This interactive session will bring together professionals, academics and the public around short presentations and a general discussion.
