RSPP Call for Papers

Special Issue on Tackling with societal, technological and climate changes in peripheral territories

Dear Colleagues,

Nowadays, peripheral regions have become an essential objective of regional science. Those territories can be understood as the outer peripheries, especially in the European Union, where the migratory pressure is quite evident. And as the so-called inner peripheries, where depopulation is a challenge that calls into question the survival of some of these regions. 

Regional science should be considered as a point of confluence of multiple approaches, and it is usual to interpret the evolution of regions in terms of economic development, placing the economy at the core of territorial policy decisions. However, it is necessary to introduce other approaches to territorial development. As such, issues such as demographic change and depopulation risk have been incorporated in European structural and investment funds of Agenda 2021-2027. 

The aim should be to generate opportunities in peripheral areas and reduce the gap between regions, guaranteeing the differential elements of both. Regional science must provide compatible and respectful solutions with the use of endogenous resources of all type of regions.

The proper platform for presenting scientific novelty and the policy relevance of the proposed papers will be the XLV International Conference on Regional Science: "Tackling with societal, technological and climate changes in peripheral territories " (20-22, November 2019, Universitat Jaume I, Castellon, Spain).

A special issue of the journal Regional Science Policy and Practice will publish selected papers presented at the conference, under the same theme. Both empirical and theoretical papers will be considered. Submissions should be made using the journal's online submission portal (https://rsaiconnect.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/17577802), and the deadline is January 31, 2020.

The coordinators of special issue are:
