Centre for Urban Policy Studies

The Centre of Urban Policy Studies (CUPS) was established in The University of Manchester by Professor Brian Robson in 1983 to develop research on urban and regional policy.

The centre now has an established reputation for:

  • policy-relevant research on the evaluation of area-based urban policy initiatives;
  • regional development;
  • spatial planning and housing;
  • and the measurement of neighbourhood dynamics.
