Date: 29/06/2022 - 30/06/2022

Venue: Funchal, Madeira, Portugal


The APDR invite regional scientists, economists, economic geographers, urban planners, policy makers, and researchers of related disciplines to participate in the 29th APDR Congress with the theme "Islands and peripheral territories: challenges in a moving geography and changing "climate" patterns" that will be held from 29 to 30 of June, 2022, at University of Madeira (Colégio dos Jesuítas), Funchal, Madeira.

Islands economies (and peripheral areas in general) have been coping with a number of challenging issues, notably the overdependence on a few key sectors such as the tourism industry and an oversized and over subsidized public administration sector. To a certain extent, islands economies can be considered as a success story, because they succeed in defined the parameters of the overall image and political discourse being conveyed abroad by the local government and ONG at the international fora. However, the current trends in terms of climate change, natural disasters, and reduced mobility, change of the epicentre of the global economy from the North Hemisphere to the Pacific Basin and anti-globalization voices put the current narrative under pressure. A new paradigm is needed to provide a new understanding to the challenges faced by such regions. The overall aim of this conference is to bring ideas, theoretical approaches and examples of potential solutions.
