Dr Tony Gore BA, MSc, MA, PhD

Research Fellow


Summary

Tony is a Research Fellow in CRESR. He has extensive experience of research and evaluation on urban and regional issues, and is an acknowledged expert on labour market disadvantage, economic development, policy integration and the geographies of governance.

About

Recent research projects include evaluation of a range of policy interventions, including the UK industrial strategy, youth support in accessing the labour market, the economic, community and social inclusion impacts of improving urban green space, and the use of procurement agreements and transport innovations to enhance access to work and training opportunities for disadvantaged job seekers. He has also undertaken evidence and scoping reviews of youth worklessness, transport barriers to employment and the potential role of urban green space in stimulating wider economic activity. In addition, he is continuing his research on collaborative governance arrangements between policy domains and across local and regional boundaries started in the 2000s.

Tony is a key member of the CRESR data analysis and policy team, helping to develop its capacity in utilising a wide range of regional, local and neighbourhood level statistics and a suite of GIS techniques. This has included quinquennial estimation of 'hidden unemployment' in local authority areas of Great Britain since 1997; tracking parallel trends in economic growth and prosperity across local economies in England; estimates of the size of the English seaside tourist economy by resort; the valuation of benefits and impacts from regeneration programmes and projects; and the evolution of intermunicipal associations in Spain.

He is a member of several academic and professional bodies

  • Royal Geographical Society/Institute of British Geographers (Fellow)
  • Regional Studies Association
  • Royal Town Planning Institute
  • IGU Commission Geography of Governance (corresponding member).

He is currently book reviews editor for the open access online journal People, Place and Policy (PPP). He is also a member of the editorial board of Planning Practice and Research, and acts as referee and book reviewer for the Journal of Common Market Studies, European Planning Studies, Local Economy, Regional Studies and Urban Studies.
