Welcome to the Centre for East London Studies (CELS)

The Centre for East London Studies (CELS) aims to stimulate debates about the changing nature of East London, and its place in the world. We conduct research and consultancy on issues of urban regeneration, focusing on the economic, social and cultural development of East London and the Thames Gateway.

We aim to provide information, research and teaching resources that enable policy-makers, businesses and local communities to understand the processes and impacts of development and thereby help optimise regeneration outcomes.

CELS is also interested in more than just questions about the regeneration of East London and looks to promote the examination of broader social science questions concerning social integration, social justice and social change.

If you are interested in getting involved with the work of CELS or are commissioning research please contact:
