Course content

This course integrates regional development and spatial planning concerns in an international context. It brings together two disciplines and addresses the challenges of building capacity for analysis, strategy and policy making.
The course is a joint initiative involving staff based in the Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies (CURDS), the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology and the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape.
The Regional Development and Spatial Planning course offers a distinctive integration of regional development and spatial planning not found at other institutions elsewhere in the UK. It has an international focus and outlook and includes conceptual, practical and policy content. There is an emphasis on links between theory, policy and practice.
