Mile End Institute

About us

The Mile End Institute utilises its unique location as a Russell Group university situated in the East End of London to bring together academics, politicians, policymakers and the public to discuss and debate the major challenges facing the country in a fast-moving and ever-changing world.

Under the guidance of our patron, Professor Peter Hennessy, the Institute calls upon a large pool of expertise from the School of Politics and International Relations and the School of History, based in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. 

Lord Peter Hennessy

The Mile End Institute sustains Queen Mary’s fine tradition of involvement in public and political life at a time of fascinating, if not perilous, uncertainty for our country.
