    Goals / remit

The Regional Studies Association is a learned society with a growing international membership, working on the study of regions defined as sub-national areas.

The Association has both individual and corporate membership and works at the interstices between academia, policy and practice. The Association has a long history of close collaboration with the European Commission and other key supranational organisations.

We research, educate and disseminate within our field seeking to enhance decision making. We organise a busy conference and meeting programme from the international to the local. We fund multiple Research Networks each year bringing together international groups (usually) to discuss themes from ageing to environment in a regional context; we recognise excellence in our field; we publish the leading journal in the field - Regional Studies; Spatial Economic Analysis; Territory, Politics, Governance; and Regional Studies, Regional Science as well as a magazines - Regions and a book series - Regions and Cities.

The Association offers support to individuals via research grants, conference bursaries and travel awards.

    Specific activities covered by the Register

The Regional Studies Association works to support regional research and to promote education and understanding of regional issues. In achieving this, the Association collaborates with many interested bodies and individuals. Work at the international level is particularly important with partners such as DG Regio (European Commission), Committee of the Regions, OECD, World Bank, UN Habitat and UN but we also work with national bodies such as the Smith Institute and the UK Academy of Social Science. There is a strong interest in and commitment to comparative work recognising that mixed models and learning from other situations can intelligently inform decision making. The Association seeks to identify areas of research need and to encourage and facilitate engagement in those areas through building communities of knowledge and practice and in some cases through direct funding support.
