Neighbourhoods, Welfare and Wellbeing
Research focuses on social and spatial inequalities and how these shape residential contexts as well as individual and collective outcomes, providing a stimulating forum for the development of research themes which integrate scholarship across urban and social policy.
Governance, Activism, Space and Place
Research into how people experience, understand, shape and plan places and spaces in cities and other urban areas, looking at the relative balance between global actors, central and local governments, communities and the private sector in shaping the future of urban areas.
City, Housing, Economic Systems and Transport
This multidisciplinary research group brings together researchers exploring topics clustered around five urban economics themes: Housing Systems, Markets and Finance; Retail and Commercial Real Estate; Economics of Urban Social Problems; Urban Transport; Urban Big Data
Our goal is ultimately to understand the workings of urban economic systems, and provide end user and policy relevant research that explores the dynamic changes occurring within the different sectors of the property market, and the inter-dependencies between land use, transport infrastructure and the wider urban economy.
