"Local Economy provides a unique insight into the shifting landscape of local economic development. The journal continues to evolve, both in international coverage, and the range of issues it engages with." Nigel Berkeley, Director, SURGE (The Applied Research Centre in Sustainable Development), Coventry University
"Alone among academic journals, Local Economy combines robust academic research and analysis with insights and opinion from practitioners working on the latest developments in the field" John Shutt, Director of the European Regional Business & Economic Development Unit (ERBEDU), Leeds Metropolitan University
"In addition to its core focus on local economic development, Local Economy has covered many other aspects of place shaping for the past twenty-six years, and as such is an invaluable support for professional development." Dr Ross Brown, Scottish Enterprise
Founded in 1986, Local Economy brings together policy analysts, researchers and practitioners concerned with local economic policies and social justice. Local Economy aims to make academic research accessible to all working in the broad field of local economic and social change.
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.
