Deprived Economies

The Economies of Deprived Neighbourhoods

Commissioned by Department of Communities and Local Government (CLG)

This research commissioned in 2006, involved managing a programme of reviews of the evidence base in respect to various key policy issues related to the economies of deprived neighbourhoods. This involved working closely with policy advisors and research managers in a number of government departments and undertaking original mixed method, primary research within a number of case study localities.

The project produced three related reports published by CLG, which together addressed the notion of sustainable employment as a route out of poverty and social exclusion:

  • The Dynamics of Local economies and Deprived Neighbourhoods; 
  • Worklessness in Deprived Neighbourhoods: A Review of Evidence; 
  • Informal Economic Activities and Deprived Neighbourhoods.
