Biography

Kevin has over 15 years of research expertise within the arena that is now termed 'inclusive economies'. Kevin has an academic background in economic geography and urban studies, and is currently involved in a range of research around inclusive economies and inclusive growth in cities. Following undergraduate and postgraduate study at the University of Birmingham, Kevin worked in applied research centres in various universities and commercial consultancies across the West Midlands. He has undertaken evaluative research into many area-based initiatives, neighbourhood regeneration programmes and community-based projects. Broader research has also focused on the evolving relationships between the state, the voluntary/community sector and civil society, and the market. Specific areas of research involve how evolving policy developments impact on local government and the voluntary/community sector, regarding their management and delivery of 'inclusion' initiatives.

Area of Expertise:

- Impact of policy on local government and the voluntary/community sector in promoting inclusion initiatives in cities

- Organisational change in voluntary/community sector organisations

- Neighbourhood regeneration / neighbourhood renewal / urban regeneration

- Policy assessment around inclusive economies, inclusive growth and economic inclusion

Vision Statement

The concept of the 'inclusive economy' is one that many would support, but converting this elusive concept into reality is challenging. There are constraints, challenges and opportunities for those organisations aiming to develop more inclusive economies, and it is only through robust evidence-based research that policy and practice will develop in this area to become effective in turning the inclusive economy into a reality.
