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).

Europa XXI has been indexed in the following databases: SCOPUS (since July 2021), ERIH PLUS (since November 2021), RCIN, Crossref, Europeana, Academia BN and BazEkon.

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: Inter-regional linkages and territorial challenges in Europe

Regions have their place in the networks involving all kinds of interaction, even as the significances of one for another may differ along with the intensity and the geographical structure. It is furthermore true that many of the global challenges European regions have had to face up to in recent decades and years have direct links with flows taking place. Flows have become transmitters of the threats that the said challenges give rise to. Among aspects to be referred to here are changes of climate (and related efforts to reduce distances over which goods are carried), Brexit (a re-establishment of barriers to flows of people and goods along one of the key internal frontiers of the European Union in existence previously), the 2015 migrant crisis (involving uncontrolled flows of people), the COVID-19 pandemic (with its supply-chain disruptions and far-reaching restrictions on travel), and the aggression perpetrated against Ukraine by the Russian Federation (as seen to compel people to migrate and to change the directions in which carriage of goods takes place).

We invite academic scholars and professionals across Europe, to contribute their work to this themed issue. We welcome submissions from a conceptual or empirical stance alike.

New deadline for Abstract submission: 31 September 2022 (
Deadline for paper submission: 15 November 2022
Planned publication: 2023
