This concluding chapter sums up the key findings of this study on the programme for cities research in Great Britain. The findings indicate that the performance of different cities across the country as a whole, measured in terms of growth or decline in population and employment, has changed little relative to one another over recent decades. The chapter also describes the relation among economic competitiveness, social cohesion, urban governance, and social capital.

Keywords:   cities research, Great Britain, population, employment, economic competitiveness, social cohesion, urban governance, social capital
