We are working with the University of Cambridge, University of Southampton, Aston University, Newcastle University, and Cambridge Econometrics on an ESRC-funded project looking at how 85 cities and towns have changed since 1971.

These cities together represent common themes and histories identified in the research.
The workshops will provide an in-depth exploration of the role of institutional arrangements and policy initiatives in dealing with economic change over the past 5 decades. They will be held in Tees Valley, Glasgow, Birmingham, Bristol and Peterborough.
Each workshop will present the main findings for the area and explore what the role of institutions and policy has been in dealing with economic change. The discussions will then addres questions such as:
