Research in the department is organised into three groups: Cities & Development, Economic Geography & Regional Science, and Environmental Economics & Policy.
The work in the department has many connections across these groups, which engage major themes in social science and policy-making, as well as methods that are used across different thematic areas.
The following cross-cutting themes unify our work and encourage collaboration and the exchange of ideas within the department:
• Sustainability, Environment & Climate Change
• Local and Regional Development and Policy
• Urban Economics, Land Use Policy and Planning
• Institutions, Politics, Geography
• Economic Geography, Locational Economics, Regional Economics
