The Trade, Geography and Regional Implications of Brexit: Special Issue from Papers in Regional Science

Thursday, 08 March 2018 13:53
Special Issue: The Trade, Geography and Regional Implications of Brexit
For the first time since Brexit was decided, in this special issue of Papers in Regional Science, a group of experts enquires about the economic geography, regional and trade implications of such a choice. With scientifically sound approaches, these works overcome political narratives, which are often too persuasive or even wrong. The theory of a ‘post-geography trading world’ – one in which the UK can easily redirect its trade flows with other far-away countries with respect to Europe – is questioned, as well as the monopoly position of UK in the trade bargaining process.
Guest edited by Professor Philip McCann, this curated collection of articles on ‘The Trade, Geography and Regional Implications of Brexit’ will allow the reader to appreciate contributions which open the debate to the real threats that the UK and the EU are going to face over the next years.
