Global city - London's past, present and future
London was and is a global city: the heart of the British Empire and now the centre of global finance. King’s academics explore London’s imperial past and its legacy through world-class research and teaching. They examine how this legacy has defined the London we know today, explore what it means to be a 21st century global city and question what London needs to do to keep its position secure.Often the centre of attention for its innovations and advances, London can be the focus of extreme criticism and even attack.
