RSPP Call for Papers | Special Issue on Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Territorial Inequalities Policies

Special Issue Theme:

“Design, Implementation and Evaluation of Territorial Inequalities Policies”

RSPP-EUREAL initiative coordinated by Ana Vinuela This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The objective of the RSPP Special Issue is to publish scientific work on the design, implementation and evaluation on integrative policy mechanisms to enable supranational, national and regional government agencies to address territorial inequalities and to imagine future spaces in which the allocation of resources is consistent with principles of social and spatial justice.

Topics are:

  1. The measurement and understanding of spatial (in)justice and territorial inequalities at national, regional or local level.
  2. The impact of the economic crisis, the austerity policies or the Covid-19 on territorial inequalities, especially in relation to the different models of territorial governance, sustainable economic development and public service delivery.
  3. Perceptions of spatial (in)justice vs quantifiable territorial inequalities
  4. Framing and justification of territorial autonomy movements and their levels of support in relation to the real or perceived spatial (in)justice.
  5. Efficacy and appropriateness of current territorial policies and instruments for addressing the challenges of territorial inequalities and spatial justice.

The RSPP Special Issue will combine qualitative and quantitative research papers and methods at multiple scales of enquiry.
