We have already seven submissions for the Special Session Walled Territories accepted for the ERSA Congress 2017 in Groningen. There is an extension of the Call for submission until the 28th of February. We think this is a very important topic for the world today that deserves more deep thoughts and analysis from regional science and the authors are invited to submit their work to a special issue of Regional Science Policy and Practice.
You have until the 28th of February to propose an abstract https://ersa.eventsair.com/QuickEventWebsitePortal/2017-ersa-congress/official-website/ExtraContent/ContentSubPage?page=7&subPage=1 and a few months to develop the theme. The territorial illnesses of the world are nearby to be better understood. There are market and policy failures; but there are also science failures mostly when we are distracted from the reality.
Write your title, aims, methods and hypothesis in the abstract. There are loads of data to be treated and, we are sure, very effective results to be discussed, improved and publicised.
We can create a great year of 2017.
