Abstract

The 2012 Paralympic Games have allowed Britons to revisit the euphoria of the Olympics, but the Games’ uncertain ‘legacy’ still loom over Stratford. When the area is no longer filled with the buzz of world-class athletes and excited fans, will the benefits promised to East London ever come to fruition? Ahead of our ecollection on the topic, we present the opinions of our experts, Anne Power, Tony Travers and Ricky Burdett, who discuss the ways to ensure a positive and lasting legacy is brought to East London and more widely, recession-weary Britain – from our archive.
