Motivation

The first two decades of the twenty-first century brought two important and distinct shocks to the world economy: the 2007–2009 Great Recession (a global economic downturn that devastated world financial markets as well as the banking and real estate industries) and the COVID-19 pandemic crisis (with effects still to be adequately understood).

Countries and regions reacted differently to these shocks because the direct shocks were initially felt differently and because the sectoral structure and the integration in the global value chains defined the propagation of distinct indirect and induced effects. As a result, diverse rhythms of recovery in distinct regions are to be expected over the coming years.

Understanding what distinguishes each region, the role of spatial heterogeneity, and how the sectoral and social structures affect the recovery and resilience of the regions is an essential avenue of research and knowledge in regional science and regional economics. This was undoubtedly the view and belief of our Portuguese colleague, Pedro Ramos, full-professor at the University of Coimbra, former director of the Portuguese Review of Regional Studies (RPER), and one of the precursors of the EU-REAL group. Sadly, he passed away in 2021, leaving behind a relevant legacy. This special issue of RSPP will cover one of the main topics addressed by Pedro throughout his long career: the integration of spatial dimension in economic modelling.

Invitation for submission

The Editors invite submissions to the special issue of Regional Science Policy & Practice titled “Region's role on recovery and resilience”. The Editors extend an invitation for submission to the colleagues who have participated in the 2022 EU-REAL meeting (Warsaw, Poland, September 2022) and/or the 9th SHAIO Conference (Aveiro, Portugal, September 2022).

Please note that the deadline for submitting papers to https://rsaiconnect.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/journal/17577802 for the RSPP Special Issue on Region's role on recovery and resilience is December 31, 2022, with foreseen publication of accepted papers in 2023.
