ERSA Conference Borders and Regional Development

A joint conference of the German Speaking, Hungarian, Polish, and Slovak Sections of the European Regional Science Association, the German Speaking, Hungarian, Polish, and Slovak Sections of the European Regional Science Association call for submission of abstracts to their jointly organized conference on Borders and Regional Development. We invite abstracts for contributions dealing with the topic of the conference in a wide sense and with related topics. The conference will be held in Berlin, Germany, September 6-7 2018. For more information and to submit an abstract go to http://gfr.ersa.org/sommer2018.

The role and function of borders has changed dramatically in Europe in the recent decades. The areas represented by the sections jointly organizing this conference were particularly affected by these changes. With Brexit approaching, we can expect such transformation to continue. Although most of these changes happened at the national level, regions were probably impacted quite differently. We feel that it is time to take account of the short, medium, and long term effects the changing role of borders had on the conditions of living, working, and doing business in the regions. The GfR summer conference 2018 is expected to serve this purpose and will help in making better informed policy decisions in the future.
