Local institutions and local economic development: the Local Enterprise Partnerships in England, 2010–

an article by Andy Pike, Anja McCarthy and Peter O’Brien (Centre for Urban and Regional Development Studies, Newcastle University), David Marlow (Third Life Economics, Stamford, Cambridgeshire) and John Tomaney (The Bartlett School of Planning, University College London) published in Cambridge Journal of Regions, Economy and Society Volume 8 Number 2 (2015)


This paper examines the roles of local institutions in economic development at the local level.

Drawing upon comparative analysis of the 39 local enterprise partnerships emergent in England since 2010, it demonstrates: how local economic development institutions work within multi-agent and multi-scalar institutional settings; the ways institutional genealogy shapes processes of layering and recombining as well as dismantling and improvising in episodes of institutional change and the analytical themes able to explore the roles and functions of institutions in local economic development.
