RSA Conference

Regional Studies Association Conference 2018 «Urban and Regional Resilience: Strategies for Success»

The 2018 RSA Russian conference is an academic conference which offers a unique opportunity for meaningful knowledge exchange between the worlds of academia, policy and practice and which offers unparalleled access to key figures in our fields.

This conference will bring together researchers and practitioners from different countries interested in urban and regional development, new development path creation, and urban and regional resilience.

The notion of urban resilience cuts across the debates in theory and practice. At the theoretical level, it has allowed linking of debates in regional geography, urban planning, and policy studies. At the practical level, policy-makers are concerned with issues of implementation and the gap between policy design and delivery. Current debates are dominated by structural factors and explanations, but the role of agency and leadership is rising up the research agenda in regional studies, political science and management.
