Call for papers for RSPP Special Issue on Population imbalances in Europe

Edited by

Prof. Rubén Garrido Yserte (University of Alcalá, Director)

Prof. Juan R. Cuadrado Roura (University of Alcalá, Jean Monnet Chair)

Associated to Papers presented in the

SETTLE International Congress: “Population imbalances in Europe”

This Congress is part of an ERASMUS+ entitled: “Population imbalances in Europe: challenges of urban concentration versus rural depopulation” (SETTLE). It will be held on-site on 27th, 28th and 29th April 2022 at the University of Alcala (Spain); organized by the Jean Monnet Chair “Economic Policy and European Union” and the Institute for Economic and Social Analysis (IAES). The SETTLE Congress is open to researchers, academics, students, public authorities and professionals. Attendance is allowed with or without the presentation of a paper or a poster. Registration is free up to 125 participants, and includes the right for attending, presenting papers and receiving the congress papers, as well as the meals during the Congress. Among them, travel and hotel expenses will be funded up to 40 participants on restrictive and justified terms, imposed by the project regulation (the project counts on the financial support of the European Commission). Thus, the economic need, the interest of the paper and the order of reception will be considered. In this sense, posters will be less valued for allowing travel and expenses funding but will be equal considered for the right of attending and meals.

Paper proposals consisting of a summary of around 100 words must be submitted before 5th February, 2022. Accepted languages for papers writing and presentation are Spanish, English and French. Writing font is Calibri 11, 1.15 pp. Papers will be circumscribed geographically to Europe-27 and neighbor countries (though others can be included if they have an influence in the European region or can be compared to it in terms of population subjects). Focus can stem from Economics, Geography, Environmental Science, Law, History or any enabling discipline. Suggested topics are: 

  • Regional policy design for a balanced population
  • Rural-urban proximity
  • Services infrastructure and welfare for population in cities and rural areas
  • Depopulation
  • Entrepreneurship and university talent attraction leading to urban concentration
  • Population imbalances and migration
  • Environmental and legal aspects of sustainability in smart cities and depopulated areas
  • Population statistics advances
  • Systemic transformation and influence on population
  • Others related (to be evaluated)

After the assessment of the Scientific Committee, accepted papers will be informed by end February. The final delivery for accepted papers will be 29th March 2022, for their inclusion in an electronic diffusion support. Selected papers will be published in two peer review journals: ‘RSPP’ - Regional Science Policy and Practice (ESCI and SJR) and ‘ICE’ - Información Com. Española. Both publications follow strict criteria of quality for publication.

Paper proposals should be sent to the Congress Desktop: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
