Module Leader: Dr Michael Smith
The aim of this module is to provide students with an understanding of both theoretical and practical issues relating to local economic development throughout the UK and Europe. It recognises the importance of contextualising the historical context of economic development within the UK and other European regions. Consideration will be given to key concepts such as participation, empowerment, capacity building, sustainability and dealing with climate change and their role in facilitating and stimulating local economic development.
