This historical...

Academics have decried the erosion of public space under the neoliberal practices that have taken root since the 1980s in cities around the world.

A large literature exists suggesting that residential mobility leads to increased participation in risky health behaviours such as cannabis use amongst youth. However, much of this work fails to account for the impact that underlying differences between mobile and non-mobile youth have on this relationship. In this study we utilise multilevel...

In the winter of 2013-2014 the south of the UK (London, Oxford) experienced the heaviest rainfall since 1767. Evidence linking these kind of flood events to climate change has put pressure on the UK flood insurance system that is incapable of properly dealing with this kind of flood events. A proposed re-insurance system, FloodRe, is suggested...

Through a review of the recent American community development literature, this paper tests the assertion that British community enterprises (CEs) are fundamentally similar to American community development corporations (CDCs), and therefore, that CEs can learn from CDCs.

Part of the political argument in favour of the right to buy (RTB) was that it would stimulate the economy by encouraging the inter-regional mobility of those in public sector housing. This is the first study to examine whether RTB...
