The Regional Studies Association works with its international membership to facilitate the highest standards of theoretical development, empirical analysis and policy debate of issues at this sub-national scale, incorporating both the urban and rural and different conceptions of space such as city-regions and interstitial spaces. We are, for example, interested in issues of economic development and growth, conceptions of territory and its governance and in thorny problems of equity and injustice.
You can apply to join the Regional Studies Association as a personal member or as a corporate member. Corporate membership applies to university departments, associations, organisations and businesses. Personal membership applies to Individual, Students, Early Career and Associates.
