Cities are increasingly seen as the drivers of the national economy, and the UK Government is devolving new powers to the largest and fastest-growing urban areas. Cities also tend to have concentrations of poverty.
This research paper for The Joseph Rowntree Foundation summarised evidence on the links between cities, growth and poverty and was carried out in early 2013 by Neil Lee, Paul Sissons and Ceri Hughes from The Work Foundation, Professor Anne Green, Duncan Adam and Gaby Atfield from the Institute for Employment Research at the University of Warwick and Professor Andrés Rodríguez-Pose from the London School of Economics.
