The Regional Studies Association Policy Impact Books form a series of punchy, policy-facing books addressing issues of contemporary concern. Policy Expo books are commissioned to address topical policy questions of contemporary importance to all communities engaged in regional and urban studies issues. The term “Expo” is taken to mean “a comprehensive description and meaning of an idea or theory”. The publication style is to use clear and coherent narrative addressing evidence for different policy and theoretical positions. Each topic is broad in scope, achieving global reach and relevance wherever possible. There is a consistent focus on the impact of policy research both in terms its reach to policy, academic and practitioner communities and also in its significance, to show how evidence can inform policy change within regional and urban studies.
Many of the books in the series present funded research from the RSA’s Policy Expo Grant Schemes.
RSA members receive hard copies of new books published in the series and have online access to the full series via the RSA Lounge.
Books published in the Series can be purchased here.
