CRESC, through it's 'Urban Experiments' theme, and the N8 group of universities in northern England, have joined forces on a stream of work on 'Just Cities and Urban Rebalancing'. The first of two seminars on this topic, which is acquiring a high profile in public policy debates, is being held at the University of York next week, on 26 and 27 January. The draft agenda is below.
This is a working meeting at which speakers will examine the factors that are resulting in the growth of disparities between and within cities across various domains (e.g. finance, real estate investment, higher education, sports, migration patterns). The purpose of the seminar is to pool interdisciplinary knowledge about inter- and intra-city disparities, to identify the particular mechanisms (including governance arrangements and public policies) that encourage or limit the growth in disparities, and to begin dialogue on a research programme which can raise the quality of debate on 'drivers' of spatial disparities in the UK and the implications that follow for policy choices as they affect the north of England.
Places at the seminar are limited but if you wish to attend, please contact Karen Ho at email@example.com
