Centre for East London Studies (CELS) Conference
Evaluating the legacy of the Olympic and Paralympic Games four years on
Monday 20th June 2016, 9am – 4pm (Followed by tour of Olympic Park)
University Square Stratford (USS), 1 Salway Road, London E15 1NF

Are we on track for realising an inclusive legacy?
What has been the impact on the Regeneration of East London, London and the UK?
Are we on track for a sporting legacy?
Have the mechanisms for governing legacy been adequate and what might we learn for future projects?
What kind of housing and employment legacy has been created?
How has the games impacted on local residents?
What progress has been made towards convergence and what are the limitations of this agenda?
What can we learn about policy implementation?
Were we successful in achieving transformation of games venues and at what cost?
More than ten years has passed since London won the bid to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games and four years since we hosted the Olympic and Paralympic games and therefore this is an important point at which to evaluate the legacy of the games. The Centre for East London Studies (CELS) at the University of East London (UEL) has been at the heart of analysis of legacy and on Monday 20th June 2016 will be hosting its third legacy conference. This conference will evaluate the impact of legacy four years on and offer a platform for a wide range of perspectives from policy makers, practitioners and academics.
