Geographical Political Economy

The Geographical Political Economy research group is the longest-standing geography research group at The University of Manchester.  Members of the group share a common commitment to political economy i

Recognising economic life as geographically constituted, and capitalism as a highly variegated and differential system we focus on how space, place, scale and the biophysical world are integral to economic and social processes.  Conceptualising states, corporations, labour and 'nature' as interconnected actors, our research examines the conditions under which new economic geographies are produced, and the social, political and environmental possibilities to which they give rise.n analysing spatial and temporal unevenness as well as environmental change.
