Local Economy is a peer-reviewed journal operating as an interdisciplinary forum for the critical review of policy developments in the broad area of local economic development and urban regeneration. It seeks not only to publish analysis and critique but also to disseminate innovative practice.
From its origins at the Local Economy Policy Unit (LEPU) at London South Bank University, the journal has grown into the premier UK-based journal for those who want to critically engage with problems of local economic development and regeneration. It maintains a commitment to grassroots activism, social justice and economic empowerment considered within the context of wider social, political and economic change.
Local Economy covers a very broad range of issues and accommodates a diversity of perspectives. The editors intend to continue enlarging both the range of issues covered and the journal’s international scope.
