Date and time
The Regional Studies Association Winter Conference 2021 offers a timely opportunity to discuss and debate important issues, and to rethink the key theories, concepts and methods used in the field of regional studies in the face of changing regional challenges, and to provide new evidence for the urgent reforms of policies for regions and cities. The conference will provide a forum for rethinking the ways in which regions and cities develop and discussing ways to nudge them towards economically, socially and environmentally sustainable development paths.
The conference organisers are keen to attract papers and special sessions which rethink the future of cities and regions. In particular, the organisers invite papers that break new ground by identifying new fields of enquiry, proposing new concepts and methods, shedding new light on the consequences of and challenges for sustainability transitions (especially on the linkages between the three pillars of sustainability – economic, social and environmental), and propose bold new policy solutions for local and regional practitioners. Moreover, papers which are collaborative, comparative or inter-disciplinary are especially welcome.
Information about abstract submission and registration will be available in early 2021.
