EUROPEAN SPATIAL RESEARCH AND POLICY is an international review concerned with the problems of social and economic space organisation at local, regional and supranational level. The journal comprising both theoretical and empirical aspects of spatial analysis is aimed at academics, policy-makers and practitioners interested in a broad range of spatial developments in contemporary Europe. The scope of the journal is defined by the concepts of space, environment, society and economy rather than by names of specific disciplines. Its main areas of interest include regional policy, spatial planning, European integration processes, locational studies, labour market developments, foreign investments, environmental problems and other crucial issues influencing the shape of the contemporary and future European space. Contributions prepared by geographers and regional scientists, as well as economists, planners, architects, sociologists and historians conducting spatial research within their disciplines reflect the interdisciplinary character of the review.
