The Re-Imagining Economies Project will catalyse new conversations and new collaborative research agendas amongst a large and unique group of economic and social geographers at Newcastle University – and beyond. Building on an impressive body of publications and research interests, our research programme brings together early-career, mid-career and senior colleagues to generate:
- A new set of contributions to international journals in Economic Geography and Human Geography
- A co-authored research monograph that explores possibilities for more progressive forms of economy
- Reports for policy makers, practitioners and other interested parties
The Reimagining Economies Project builds on a series of important earlier interventions by members of the team around finance, governance, labour and resource networks, including:
