About the Regional Studies

Regions are a key spatial scale for examining the nature and impacts of political, economic, social and environmental change and innovation.

The Regional Studies Association works with its international and interdisciplinary membership to facilitate the highest standards of theoretical development, empirical analysis and policy debate of issues at this sub-national scale, incorporating both the urban and rural and different conceptions of space such as city-regions and interstitial spaces.
