Papers in Local and Regional Development
Papers in Local and Regional Development publishes work dealing with problems, potentials and strategies of development in regions and localities under pressure from global and national trends. The papers should provide analyses and suggest new approaches to the study of small cities and peripheries as well as of challenged localities within metropolitan regions. Experience, culture and creative economy together with green economy and sustainability are examples of such new approaches to local end regional development. Innovative ways of dealing with inherited competences in traditional industries is similarly in focus. We encourage integrated approaches providing complex understandings of societal phenomena, and also recognize the need for in depth discussions of particular notions and theories.
