Europa XXI

Europa XXI encourages the submission of a variety of multidisciplinary analytical, theoretical and methodological articles, in fields ranging from socioeconomic geography, spatial planning, transport geography, regional studies, cohesion policy and political science and economy, through to sociology and cultural studies. Our journal’s main purpose is to discuss territorial aspects of development processes, and to set those various processes and policies against their implications in practice. The focus here is on the dynamics of pan-European and EU systems, as well as those in the CEECs; or even on case studies relating to single regions, where these can prove significant from a global perspective. From time to time, individual issues of Europa XXI also concentrate on particular themes (such as public services or border studies).

Please see our Guide for Authors for information on article submission. If you require any further information or help, please contact us.


CALL FOR PAPERS: The Geography and Governance of Infrastructure Provision

Further, we want to gain perspective on future possibilities for the provision of basic services and infrastructure.

We invite academic scholars, explicitly also young researchers as well as professionals across Europe, to contribute their work to this themed issue. We welcome submissions from a conceptual or empirical stance alike. They may be of a comparative nature or provide insights into particular cases.
