Mr Callum Ward
14 Upper Woburn Place
  • Research Fellow
  • The Bartlett School of Planning
  • Faculty of the Built Environment

Callum was awarded his PhD in Geography from KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2019 for a Research Foundation-Flanders (FWO) funded thesis on the financialisation of the built environment in Manchester and Antwerp. Callum then worked at York University, Canada, investigating dynamics of monopoly and rentiership in the tech sector before joining UCL as a BSP Fellow in September 2019, where he carried out an independent project focusing on the inter-relations between the rise of market-based planning and neoliberal authoritarianism. He has been a Research Fellow on the 'What is Governed in Cities' (WHIG) project since October 2020.

Research Summary

Callum’s research centres on questions of governance in an increasingly rentier-dominated economy and the associated politics of (who is exposed to) risk. He has published on land rent theory, the governance of land ‘assetisation’, and the financial engineering of port infrastructure. He is currently bringing these interests to bear as a Research Fellow on the 'What is Governed in Cities' (WHIG) project, investigating the regulation of and investment in residential housing in London.
