Europa XXI encourages a variety of multidisciplinary analytical, theoretical and methodological articles, ranging from socioeconomic geography, spatial planning, transport geography, regional studies, cohesion policy, political science & economy to sociology and cultural studies. The main purpose of the journal is the discussion of territorial aspects of development processes and comparative studies of various processes and policies with its implications in practice. It focuses on the dynamics of pan-European, the European Union or CEE countries systems, or even case studies of single regions if essential from the global perspective. From time to time, individual issues concentrate on particular themes (e.g. public services, border studies).
