Academics, policy experts and decision-makers from all around the world share their viewpoints and researches on a plethora of geographically and spatially related thematic concentrations. Among these include, just to mention a few, sub-national actors, supranationalism, ASEAN, NAFTA, the Mercosur and other regional trading blocs, urban and rural studies and the politics of independence movements.
