Throughout the summer of 2022, a decade since the London 2012 Olympic Games, UCL Urban Laboratory collaborated with UCL Institute for Global Prosperity, the University of Cardiff, Oxford Brookes University, and the University of East London to undertake an interrogation of the Legacy of the Games for the people and environment of East London. To coincide with ten years since the London 2012 Games, the multi-university team produced the State of the Legacy Review, an examination of the wide range of literature produced about a Games that always promised to have legacy at its heart. More has been written about the London 2012 Games than any before or since. Spanning areas including housing, governance, employment and parkland, we take a look at what the trends and overall messages of this body of work are, what this tells us about the legacy of mega-events for those living amongst them, and how the promise of legacy held up in reality.
