Abstract

City-region economies is a new HSRC initiative aimed at understanding the process of inclusive growth in cities and regions, and the factors and forces inhibiting shared and enduring prosperity. We are also interested in why some cities are more successful than others, and what policies and practices can improve conditions on the ground, writes Prof Ivan Turok.
