Conférence organisée à Beijing (Chine) par la Regional Studies Association et la Chinese Academy of Sciences
Appel à communications jusqu’au 10 février 2012
Extrait de la présentation en ligne :
"As well as the plenary sessions at the Beijing conference, where keynote speakers will address some of the biggest issues facing regions and sub-national areas around the world, gateways are being organised on the causes and implications of different patterns of regional development. The gateways are dedicated to assessing the forms and successes of regional policies in managing regional disparities ; establishing basic public services ; supporting endogenous growth and the comparative advantages of regions ; promoting regional competitiveness and sustaining harmony between the economy, society and the environment. Papers on each of these themes are encouraged - on different countries’ and regions’ experiences, and on comparative studies.
Papers on aspects of social justice, territorial politics, governance, and peripheral and marginal regions are also
welcome to address what has been happening in these times of rapid national growth and global upheaval. Additional topics in which we particularly encourage contributions are city-regions, spatial planning and analysis which may look at the position in China but which may focus elsewhere."
