Public Policies, Spatial Economics

publié le , mis à jour le

Coordinators :


The “Space and Public Policies” (SPP) research group works on the spatial distribution of economic activities, its consequences for the design of public policies and the impact of these policies on social welfare.
Public policies that are investigated include taxation, innovation, research and development, housing, employment, health and environment. A distinctive feature of our research is to emphasize the role of the spatial dimension in the analysis of these policies. The spatial analysis covers various scales, from the infra-urban scale (with the study of urban segregation and urban sprawl) to the international scale (with the analysis of intergovernmental competition).
The analytical methods are both theoretical and empirical. On the empirical side, applied econometrics is used with survey data collected by official bodies (Surveys on Housing, R & D, Innovation, public data from the Local Government Branch, etc.), or by the researchers themselves. On the theoretical side, the spatial dimension is addressed through the development of models of cooperation networks, urban economics or international trade.
The SPP research group is involved in the creation of the European Monitoring Centre for Localized Data on Innovation (EuroLIO), led by Corinne Autant-Bernard. EuroLIO’s mission is to facilitate the interactions between researchers, policy makers and data producers. It produces and disseminates information on localized innovation, with a goal of assisting local government decision making.
Sylvie Démurger is the scientific coordinator of the International Associated Laboratory (LIA) Chineq. The LIA Chineq is built upon a long-lasting collaboration between GATE and the School of Business (SEBA) of Beijing Normal University. It aims at promoting new research and training activities in the field of economic inequalities.
Florence Goffette-Nagot is a member of the research chair "Habiter Ensemble la Ville de Demain" (HEVD), hosted by the Labex "Intelligence des mondes urbains". The chair brings together researchers in human and social sciences, in the aim of shedding light on "living together in cities" issues.
