Birkbeck Sport Business Centre’s Mark Panton on stadium-led regeneration

Mark Panton, a PhD student with the Birkbeck Sport Business Centre, has been working on a research project looking at how stakeholders influence stadium-led regeneration?

His research, based on two in-depth case studies, was used to develop a framework based on twelve concepts that sets out how stakeholders in East Manchester and Tottenham sought to influence stadium-led development through, for example, mobilisation, protest and use of media. The stakeholder influence framework demonstrates the wide range of triggers, strategies and the means used by stakeholders to influence stadium development.

A more detailed synopsis of his PhD research can be found here (.pdf).
