Capitalism’ by Routledge (1992). She has researched at the Building Economics Research Unit at UCL and at Westminster Business School, where she is Professor of European Industrial Relations.

KXRLG is made up of community groups and individuals living and working in Camden and Islington whose aim is to influence the developments in around the King’s Cross railway lands in order to ensure they benefit local residents, community groups and businesses.
Linda has been helping KXRLG to assess the potential for training and employment in the construction of the forthcoming development on the King’s Cross railway lands.
