Conference details

Dr Paul Sissons, SURGE, Coventry University will be presenting at Coventry University (Jaguar Building – JA141) on Wednesday 14th May from 4pm – 6pm.

British cities are increasingly viewed as ‘drivers of growth’. However, they are also the sites of some of the country’s most acute labour market disadvantage, leading to questions of who gains from city growth and how? This presentation will explore the issues through reference to a new analysis of the links between growth and poverty in British cities during the 2000s.

This is part of the 2013-14 Economic Development Seminar Series collaboratively hosted by SURGE (Applied Research Centre in Sustainable Regeneration, Coventry University), Regional Studies Association and West Midlands Economic Forum bringing together academics and practitioners giving an opportunity for the economic development community to share findings and good practice.

This Series is especially timely in the context of evolving government policy and the current economic climate.

There is no charge for attendance and light refreshments will be available.
