July 10, 2014 1018

Authors have until August 18 to submit 400-word abstracts for papers for the Regional Studies Association Winter Conference, themed “Sustainable Recovery? Rebalancing, Growth, and the Space Economy.” Full papers must be submitted by October 6. The conference will be held November 27 and 28 at the Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury.


Themes

• EU and OECD agendas for Smart, Inclusive, and Sustainable Economies
• Modelling and theorising the space economy: urban renewal and regional growth
• The future of work and work-welfare regimes: labour market policy, flexibility, resilience or flexploitations?
• New approaches to agglomeration and the clustering of economic life
• Creative city-regions and urban leadership
• The impacts of devolution and constitutional change on economic policy, and vice versa
• The politics and policies of urban and regional austerity
• Cities, Regions, or City-Regions: searching for scalar and institutional fixes


RSA logoThis conference provides a platform on which to address the new economic order and its spatial manifestations. The world has seen a series of shifts in socio-economic relations over the past decade, which has picked up pace since the global financial crisis of 2008, particularly in relation to the complex inter-related processes of industrialisation, urbanisation, and regional and local development. Is the mediation between economic logic and political institutions leading to new patterns of economic activity at a local, regional, national and global level? The conference organisers are keen to attract papers and sessions which address a broad research and policy agenda, including contributions from any discipline which can offer relevant insights associated with the remaking of the world space economy and its shaping of our cities and regions.

Organizers for the conference include Martin Jones, Sheffield University, UK; Pedro Marques, Cardiff University, UK, and Elizabeth Mitchell of the RSA (Elizabeth.mitchell@regionalstudies.org)

To submit go to www.regionalstudies.org/conferences and follow the Winter Conference Call for Papers 2014 link. Proposals will be considered by the Conference Programme Committee against the criteria of originality and interest, subject balance and geographical spread.
