Rather than assuming there will be trickle down benefits, it is argued that efforts to promote inclusive growth should be rooted in an understanding of the experiences of different people and places. The article presents empirical analysis of changes in the ways that deprived neighbourhoods in three English city-regions are linked to the wider economy, drawing on a typology of residential mobility and population-level indicators of economic and social change. It proposes that contextualised analysis of spatial inequalities within city-regions can support the development of more explicit theories about how these inequalities are created and sustained, opening up opportunities to develop a theoretically informed, and more concrete, inclusive growth agenda.
