Inclusive economy

Theme lead: Richard Crisp

Understanding how social and spatial inequalities are shaped through economic life is critical to addressing the defining challenges of our time, such as the rise of in-work poverty and how to address regional disparities in prosperity.

CRESR Inclusive Economy theme develops this research agenda by asking: What are the processes contributing to labour market vulnerability and economic insecurity? And how we might create more inclusive economies that provider greater economic wellbeing?

Our researchers combine expertise in applied policy research with interdisciplinary interests across sociology, geography, economics and urban studies to engage in leading research on a range of themes around inclusive economies including

  • welfare reform
  • worklessness
  • labour market precarity
  • governance of spatial inequalities
  • regional and industrial policy
  • inclusive growth and alternative economic development
