Research in the school is structured around the following broad themes: sustainable consumption and production systems; poverty, social justice and entitlement; regional, city-region and neighbourhood governance; innovation and regeneration; complexity, urban evolution and environmental systems; pedagogy, knowledge and the built environment; these themes are explored at multiple scales (supra-national, national, regional and local) in urban and rural spaces, and across different sectors (such as housing, environment, labour markets). research work at the school of geography and planning is organised into 5 main groups with a number of crosscutting research centres. some of these focus work within research groups and others operate across research group boundaries.
