EGC has a leading and long-standing reputation in retail geography and evolutionary economic geography. It has close links with other parts of the University including the Third Sector Research Centre, the Work Futures Research Centre, the Centre for Transnational Studies, and the Centre for Citizenship, Globalisation, and Governance. The group's current strategy is to develop research along the following three lines:
- Evolution in Economic geography, including: retail industries, centres, and consumption; globalisation and emerging markets; regional and urban growth and decline; global production networks; innovation systems and transitions; and cities and cultural economy.
- Practice and culture, including: food and animal welfare; matter and technology; organisational practices, risk and behavioural change; migration and diversity; resilience and development, and urban culture and space.
- Governance and politics, including: political governance and regulation; urban governance and culture; localism, decentralisation, and democracy; and social welfare and inequalities.
