Description

City Horizons with Professor Ron Martin
Survival of the cities?

5.30pm for a 6pm start, until 7pm, Tuesday 12 December

The lecture will be followed by a drinks reception until 8pm.

Centre for Cities is delighted to welcome Professor Ron Martin, Professor of Economic Geography at Cambridge University and principal investigator in major ESRC funded project, City Evolutions, will explore the resilience of British cities to major economic shocks.

With Brexit looming, and the prospect of future disruptive technological change, the economic futures of British cities is unpredictable at best. Using a half a century of detailed economic data for 85 cities across the country, Professor Martin will discuss the relevance of the notion of 'resilience' both in understanding how cities react to and recover from economic shocks, using evidence from the three most recent recessions of the 80s, 90s and the crash of 2008, and in thinking about potential policy options that might help improve the robustness of cities to future turbulence.

This lecture will draw on a brand new dataset developed as part of the City Evolutions project, bringing unique and rigorous insight into the resilience of UK cities over the past several decades. You can find continued analysis of the dataset in the project’s series of working papers and briefings, before fuller analysis is published next year.
