Christina Beatty

Christina Beatty BSc (Hons), MPhil, FRSA

Professor of Applied Economic Geography


Summary

Christina is a Professor of Applied Economic Geography in the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research (CRESR). She has 30 years' of experience of undertaking applied policy and evidence based research. She has managed many national research and evaluation projects utilising large scale data intensive and mixed method approaches to understand the spatial impacts of policy initiatives. She is especially interested in the intersection of welfare reform, labour market policy, housing policy, inclusive growth, and the productivity of industries and places. Her work highlights the uneven and often unintended local consequences of national policy decisions across different types of places and economic contexts in Britain. Her research has a particular focus on older industrial Britain, former coalfield areas, inner city areas, and Britain’s seaside towns.

About

Since joining CRESR in 1992, Christina has built a substantial body of work investigating the long-term dynamics of: labour markets in particular types of places; gender differences in economic inactivity; diversions within the benefits system; and the geography of hidden unemployment. She has been a successful co-applicant for several ESRC grants investigating: labour market adjustment processes in the British Coalfields; unemployment in Britain's seaside towns; economic inactivity amongst men; and the geography underpinning the rise in numbers of women on incapacity-related benefits.

In recent years, her work has focused on estimating the cumulative impact of welfare reform and its uneven impact on people and places. As well as many local studies, she has undertaken national studies funded by Scottish Parliament, the Financial Times, Joseph Rowntree Foundation, National Housing Federation and Oxfam. Christina led the quantitative strand of research on the three year evaluation of The Impact of the Changes to the Local Housing Allowance System of Housing Benefit for DWP and previously led the data strand of the ten year evaluation of New Deal for Communities for CLG.

Christina is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, a member of the Editorial Board of Social Policy and Administration, a member of the SIPHER Scientific Advisory Board, and a member of Advisory Board for Nuffield Foundation funded project “Unpacking the Disability Employment Gap”.
