More about this group

Research at the Centre is concerned with governance, housing, citizenship, globalisation and the transformation of social and economic life in cities. Centre members come from the disciplines of economics, social policy, history, geography, social economics and social work. We combine interests in theoretical approaches to social and urban theory with practical involvement in current issues of policy in the UK and across the world. We work across disciplines with colleagues from other centres in the School, other UK and international universities as well as with professionals. Our staff members have active research links with institutions in East and South East Asia, the European Union and Europe, particularly the Balkan countries. This results in work with a strong international and comparative dimension which we see as one of our key strengths.
