London partners worked closely with the Tower Hamlets Council Regeneration Team and followed the re-development of the Whitechapel Market. The area which has a dominant history of migration and catering for local ethnic communities has undergone major spatial and social transformations, including a new Crossrail station in 2022.

The London team in collaboration with the Stockholm team undertook advanced spatial analysis and mapping that focused on socio-economic inequalities by measuring spatial accessibility and potential for urban mobility. This included mapping the spatial and social catchment area of local centres and/or public transportation nodes.
