Professor Adrian Smith

School of Geography


My main interests are in economic geography, the political economy of cities and regions, global production networks, economic (in)security, and the restructuring of industries in post-socialist East-Central Europe and North Africa. I was trained in human geography and development studies, and my interests continue to focus on the relations between uneven development and political economy. For many years I have worked on the economic and social consequences of transformation in Slovakia, Bulgaria and Poland and more recently have been researching the post-Arab Spring integration of the Tunisian economy into the EU Single Market through clothing production networks. I am also Editor in Chief of the journal European Urban and Regional Studies.
