Spatial Inequalities and Poverty
Cities across the world are experiencing wide inequalities of treatment, opportunity and outcomes that persist between different ethnic, demographic and social groups.
In addition to multiple inequalities, there is considerable income poverty.
The difficulties associated with low-pay and poor returns from enterprise activities are exacerbated by high levels of commodification and disadvantageous political relationships.
There have been multiple and diverse efforts to reduce urban poverty from a wide range of different agencies.
There is thus a pressing need to develop a progressive agenda of inclusive and sustainable growth in the cities of both the Global north and Global south.
This theme will house the Eco-Urbanisation project and Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) funded Inclusive Growth Analysis Unit.
