Communities

Extensive international network of branches, sections, divisions and territorial ambassadors who work together with the association to expand opportunities and benefits.

Ambassadors

The Regional Studies Association has an extensive international network of Branches, Sections, Divisions and Territorial Ambassadors who work together with the Association to expand the opportunities and benefits offered to its members and to introduce the Association to those who do not yet know us.

These networks are set up to organise a range of activities open to all and to inform and disseminate information on regional studies at a local, regional and/or national level. They also act as an invaluable link to the Association for those who work in a language other than English and also for those who cannot attend major events organised by the Association.

If you would like more information on the global RSA territorial representatives scheme, please read the Ambassador Guidelines and the Branch-Chair-Guidelines or contact suede@regionalstudies.org

Territorial Networks

Research Networks

RSA Research Networks are formed by RSA members interested in collaborating to examine an issue that responds to the aims and goals of the Association, and which is of interest and concern to both members and non-members. These issues need not necessarily to have a direct policy focus, but the examination would normally lead to policy-related conclusions.


Forthcoming application deadline: 30th September 2020.

Online Communities

We also have active communities across social media platforms.

On Facebook, we have our Regional Studies Association-Students & Early Careers open group where PhD and Early Career researchers in the regional studies community can post and discuss topics of interest. The Women in Regional Studies and Regional Science is a private group where early and mid career women from the fields of regional studies and science join to discuss topical issues in the field. If you are interested in joining, please do ask to join – we love new members! You might be interested in our Women’s Network WhatApp group – please email Alex for more information.
