Economic geography

Research into regional and urban development, inequalities between places and the location of economic activity.

CEP research explains why some areas to do better than others unpicking the role that education, employment, infrastructure and institutions play in the growth of certain areas and what can be done to improve resilience to economic shocks. From 2008-2015, much of this work was done in collaboration with the Spatial Economics Research Centre (SERC)

Since 2015, the work of SERC has been included within the CEP's Urban programme. Ongoing research includes analyses of what triggers urban decline and how globalisation can amplify the differences between areas within countries.
