Charting a course towards improved territorial governance. 

Our Expert's Regional Studies section is dedicated to the delivery of strategic insight and the elaboration of sustainable policy solutions focusing on the politics of territoriality. 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.
