Brief Introduction

Neil M. Coe is a Professor of Economic Geography at the National University of Singapore, where he was Head of Department for six years from 2012-2018. Prior to re-joining NUS in August 2012, he worked for 12 years at the University of Manchester in the UK. 

His research interests are in the areas of global production networks and local economic development; the geographies of local and transnational labour markets; the geographies of innovation; and institutional and network approaches to economic development. These concerns have been explored through empirical research into computer services, temporary staffing and logistics in the UK, Europe and Asia Pacific, the film and television industry in the UK and Canada, and retailing in the UK, East Asia and Eastern Europe.

He recently wrote the Advanced Introduction to Global Production Networks (Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2021). He is also co-author of Global Production Networks: Theorizing Economic Development in an Interconnected World (OUP, Oxford, 2015), Economic Geography: A Contemporary Introduction (Wiley, Chichester, 2020, third edition) and Spaces of Work: Global Capitalism and the Geographies of Labour (Sage, London, 2004) and co-editor of The Economic Geography of the UK (Sage, London, 2010) and The Globalization of Retailing (2 vols., Edward Elgar, Cheltenham, 2009).

He is currently an editor of the Journal of Economic Geography and on the editorial board of European Urban and Regional Studies and the Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography. He was previously an editor of European Urban and Regional Studies (2010-2013), Human Geography Editor of the RGS-IBG Book Series (2011-2014) and Director of the Singapore Journal of Tropical Geography (2012-2018).

Research Interests

I am an economic geographer with research interests in the following areas:
• global production networks and local economic development;
• the geographies of local and transnational labour markets;
• the geographies of innovation;
• institutional and network approaches to economic development.


These concerns are explored through empirical research into a number of sectors across a range of geographies:
• producer services, most notably temporary staffing, computer services and logistics in the UK, Europe and the Asia Pacific;
• consumer services, particularly retailing in the UK, East Asia and Eastern Europe;
• the cultural industries, especially the film and television industry in the UK and Canada.
