Regional Economic Development and History
CPS research affiliate Sara Svensson and Marijn Molema (Frisian Institute of Social Research) are the co-editors of the book published by Routledge 'Regional Economic Development and History'.
The edited volume is one of the outcomes of a research network on regional economic and policy history, of which CEU Center for Policy Studies was a founding partner (https://cps.ceu.edu/research/rehi). Most of the contributions were presented at workshops organized by the network. The chapters explore the theoretical and methodological implications of working interdisciplinary between the social sciences and the humanities. It also provides case studies and plenty of empirical examples from Europe, the US, Latin America and Asia. The network received funding from the Regional Studies Association, a UK-based professional association with global outreach. Its president, Ron Martin, co-wrote the preface for the book.
