Video Summary

• What is globalisation?

• How have trade and migration made London a global city?

• Why do migrants come to live and work in particular parts of London?

• How is this transforming city streets, cultures and economies?

In this video, we team up with human geographer Dr Will Monteith (Queen Mary University of London), to answer these questions by investigating the geography of the fabric trade in East London.
