WG Programme Coordinators:

The aim of the Working Group on Regional Development and Inter-regional Co-operation is to identify, explore and disseminate new research within the broad field of regional governance and create a platform for academics and practitioners to debate and advance new scholarship and solutions to pressing issues. Our main focus is on the theory and practice of regional development and inter-regional cooperation on different levels (from state to local, municipal) and aspects (administrative in its relations with social, economic, cultural), to cover the history and good practices of the process.


In 2018 the Working Group concentrates on the effects of social and political uncertainty on regional governance and inter-regional co-operation, and bring the work under the umbrella title of: "Regional Governance in Uncertain Times”.

We are therefore inviting contributions that broadly fall within the following topics:
●the challenges to regional governance in an age of social and political uncertainty;
●regional and municipal cooperation as a catalyst for regional development;
●the role of cooperative regional clusters in Europe and neighbouring countries in promoting good governance.
