Meta-evaluation of the impacts and legacy of the London 2012 Olympic Games and Paralympic Games: related research

This series brings together all the related research documents to the London 2012 meta-evaluation.

Beyond the main London 2012 meta-evaluation publications, several surveys and pieces of research related to the Games which are contributing to the meta-evaluation have also been published.

These include:

  • A media research paper – investigating the impact of the Games on print media with regards to disability, the reputation of the UK and perceptions of East London
  • A survey of participants in Inspire projects – drawing together the views of more than 2,000 participants to ask about their awareness of the programme and its impact on their views and behaviour.
  • A short summary of a survey of Games Makers – assessing the impact of the Games on volunteers.
  • A survey of the host boroughs - collecting information on residents’ views, behaviours and attitudes related to the Olympics and Paralympics Games being hosted in their boroughs.
