Call for Abstracts

We welcome participants from the UK, Europe and further afield, and from a wide range of disciplines and methodological traditions. Papers from early career researchers are particularly encouraged and will be included in the main conference stream. A small number of travel and accommodation bursaries is
available for early career scholars.

Abstracts should be submitted by Friday 20th September 2019 and participants will be notified of acceptance by Friday 27th September at the latest.

We welcome papers on a wide range of topics related to inclusive growth, both conceptual and empirical. The central focus is on the level of the city or city-region, but relevant findings may be drawn from other larger and smaller spatial scales.

Themes could include, but are not limited to:

  • Inclusive growth: theories and concepts
  • Measurement of inclusive growth, at city, neighbourhood and project level
  • Labour market trends and inclusive growth
  • Building Inclusive Economies (e.g. community wealth building, municipal companies, building the social economy, procurement, anchors)
  • Inclusive innovation
  • Politics and governance of inclusive growth, including citizen engagement
  • Planning, housing and transport
  • Finance, investment and appraisal models for inclusive growth
  • Employment support programmes and employer/business engagement
  • Education and skills
  • Innovative actions at neighbourhood level
  • The role of welfare states in inclusive growth
  • Inclusive growth, sustainability, health and well-being
  • Migration and inclusive growth
