Activity: Participating in or organising an eventParticipation in workshop, seminar


A recent ESRC seminar series and book, developed in part by researchers at the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research (CMIST), laid out ten challenges for researchers involved in neighbourhood effects research. This interdisciplinary symposium provided a response to some of these challenges with a showcase of the latest research on neighbourhood effects at The University of Manchester. The symposium included a plenary presentation from Hallsworth visiting professor, Ana Diez Roux (Dean of the School of Public Health, Drexel University). The research papers focussed on the idea of neighbourhood effects operating differently for different population groups (including older people and ethnic minority groups) and in different national contexts, the impact of policy on neighbourhood effects and the latest methodological perspectives, both qualitative and quantitative, within the research field.
