The concept of “inclusive growth” has been widely adopted by policymakers in local and regional development in the past decade. The term has been used in strategies in a variety of contexts internationally as well as within the regions of the UK. Inclusive growth strategies have also been closely associated with debates relating to the characteristics of “place-based” development and the extent to which local economic and industrial strategies can be used more explicitly to address socio-economic inequalities both within and between territories. In this context, application of these principles could clearly have significance for redressing some of the spatial and social divides associated with the voting patterns in the EU referendum. The general principles implied by the term “inclusive growth” are broadly understood to refer to strategies that enable as many people as possible to derive benefits from growth through their active participation in the growth process. There is still much debate, however, concerning how such strategies differ from conventional approaches and the measures that might be used to define good outcomes. The presentation will trace the origins of this concept and illustrate this with recent examples of attempts to put these principles into practice.
