Poverty is frequently seen either as an indicator of individual weakness, or as an inevitable by-product of dysfunctional – and unjust – structural systems. The importance of geography and place in causing and solving poverty is often overlooked.

In this lecture Julia Unwin will explore the geography of poverty and the difference places can make, and describe the challenges for public policy if it is to be truly place-based.

Ahead of the publication of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s comprehensive strategy to solve UK poverty, Julia will explore the different ways in which our view of place shapes our responses to poverty.

Free admission, all seats allocated on a first-come first-served basis.
