LSE Cities is seeking two Researchers to undertake research together on the ESRC funded project ‘Super-diverse streets: Economies and spaces of urban migration in UK Cities’, led by Dr Suzanne Hall, Assistant Professor and Research Fellow, London School of Economics and Political Science.

The project explores the intersections between city streets, social diversity and economic integration.  It is a multidisciplinary, comparative analysis of ‘super-diverse’ high streets that aims to explore how urban retail economies and spaces are shaped by and shape migrant entrepreneurial practices.  The project focuses on four high streets within the UK’s most diverse cities: Leicester, Manchester, Birmingham and Bradford.

In comparing the social, economic and spatial compositions of four high streets in the UK’s most diverse cities, the project aims to address empirical and policy gaps in detailed understandings of how contemporary high streets are transformed through urban migration.
