Prof Graham Haughton - Research
My research uses political economy perspectives to explore various aspects of urban and regional policy. This has covered work on sustainable urban development, urban regeneration, regional development, water conflicts and labour market governance.
My current writing is focused on two key themes. First, a critical examination of neoliberal spatial governance, in particular the English 'spatial planning project' . Second, I am exploring the political economy of flood risk management, with particular reference to the floods in Hull and the East Riding in 2007.
