|Date & Time:||Tuesday 13th July to Thursday 15th July 2021|
The Annual Conference was due to take place at the London School of Economics in June 2020. This was postponed due to the health pandemic. Given that there inevitably remains some uncertainty about physical events we will hold the conference digitally. Plans to host a physical visit to the LSE Centre Buildings on day three cannot take place due to last month’s Government advice and will not now include a digital presentation on the Centre Building at LSE.
The programme, is planned as follows, though inevitably it is subject to change:
