This paper argues that the championing of ‘cityregions’ provides an opportunity for taking these debates further. It draws on research taking place on the Sheffield City- Region, UK, and particularly discusses the interrelationships between competitiveness, work–welfare regimes – those policies and strategies dealing with labour market governance and welfare state restructuring – labour market inequalities and low pay. The paper suggests that city-regions reinforce, and have the potential to increase, rather than resolve, uneven development and socio-spatial inequalities.
