As Director of Policy and Research, Paul Swinney oversees the research programme and strategy of the Centre. He has published on a wide range of subjects relating to city economies, including the development of UK cities over time, the role that city centres play in the national economy and the trading relationships UK cities have with the rest of the world.

Paul said: “A central part of the Government's election campaign was to 'level up' the country. While Covid-19 understandably put this on pause, the Government is now running out of time if it is to create policies that put more money in the pockets of people living in the North of England.”

“Ahead of the Budget, I'll look at the history of a problem that is at least 80 years in the making, show what the Chancellor needs to focus on if it really is going to level up, and what this means for Sunderland.”

Paul's lecture will be presented on Microsoft Teams on Wednesday, February 24th, from 5.30pm to 7pm.
