The Human Geography Research Group at Birmingham carries out theoretically and empirically informed research aimed at understanding how social practices and relations are conditioned by space and place. Our research is collaborative and internationally recognised for its quality. We engage with partners around the world to advance understandings in theory and to develop more equitable, fair and just forms of public policymaking.
Our three research subthemes bring our expertise together on key topics: Adapting to Environmental and Energy Uncertainties; Cities, Regions and Mobilities; and Children, Young People and Education. These provide rich foundational knowledge for the School’s interdisciplinary focus on Urban Sustainability.
