Course summary

In the UK moves to devolve government and decision-making to the regional and local levels are generating an increased requirement for well-trained professionals who are capable of providing the knowledge and analytical skills required. Across Europe increased economic and monetary union is emphasising the need for member states to consider how those involved in urban and regional government can tackle the spatial disparities in economic growth and development that have been such an entrenched feature of the last 20 years.

In the Far East and North America, a similar level of interest is being shown in how governments can best ensure more geographical balance in development. The design and implementation of spatial policies to manage the process of growth require professionals with a multidisciplinary skill base and an international perspective on best practice.

This course is therefore designed to equip you with the analytical skills required to:

  • Understand the factors that lead to variations in regional growth and development and to understand the consequences of regional imbalance
  • Assess the scope for policy intervention to manage regional growth
  • Design efficient and effective policies to manage growth at the regional level
  • Understand how best to implement growth and regeneration policies
  • Evaluate policy achievement and monitor and assess the effectiveness of policy initiatives.
