Mile End Institute
The Mile End Institute brings together politicians, policymakers, academics, and the public to debate the major challenges facing East London and the United Kingdom in a fast-moving world.
The Mile End Institute is Queen Mary University of London's primary centre for the study and public discussion of the major challenges facing British politics, policymaking, and public life. Established in 2015 under the patronage of Lord Hennessy of Nympsfield, it has hosted hundreds of public events, produced research papers and policy briefings, and appointed dozens of Honorary Research Fellows. Directed by Professor Patrick Diamond and Dr Robert Saunders, the Institute has enhanced QMUL's reputation as one of the UK's leading universities for the study of British politics.
As part of QMUL's ambition to be an 'anchor institution', the Institute also works with local communities and policymakers to explore and tackle the key political and policy questions facing East London. In addition to our Polling London project which regularly surveys public opinion in the Capital, we host public events, undertake interdisciplinary research, and co-convene the East London Research Network. The Institute is also working to establish QMUL in wider policymaking communities and build capacity and skillers among researchers, staff, and students to shape public policy debates.
