Urban Futures Salford Manchester. Research in the City


Four themes cut across the GM LIP programme of work:

CONTESTING CITIES explores the conceptualization and contestation of different perspectives on sustainability and their implications for cities and city-regions.

GOVERNING CITIES examines the relationships between formal governance structures and informal governing practices and how the governance of sustainable urban development is changing in post-austerity Britain.

KNOWING CITIES explores how knowledge is produced, exchanged and used, the values and dispositions needed to underpin sustainable urban development and the implications for urban sites of knowledge production.

TRANSFORMING CITIES provides a mechanism for collectively exploring the relationship between critical-engaged urban research and practice and alternative forms of sustainable urbanism.
