Building on an ESRC Future Research Leaders award, Urban Gateways: Can Global Cities Provide Leadership for Global Governance?, UCL STEaPP has developed the City Leadership Initiative, a collaboration with UN-Habitat and World Bank Group designed to improve our understanding of how city leadership translates into long-term strategic visions, how it relates and contributes to global governance and how this global action is perceived ‘on the ground’ in cities.
