Culture, Institutions, and Economic Development: A Study of Eight European Regions

Edward Elgar, 1 jan. 2003 - 215 pagina's
'This is a very interesting book which can provide better understanding of the impact of regional culture and identity on regional development under changing political and economic conditions.' - Dieter Eißel, Journal of Contemporary European Studies Regions are increasingly recognised as a key aspect of economic change in Europe, not merely as geographic spaces but also as social systems. Their history, culture, institutions and patterns of leadership mould the way in which they adapt to European and global competitive challenges. This book reviews the debate surrounding the construction of regions and presents eight case studies to illustrate how they are shaped and reshaped in a variety of different ways. the authors find that while some regions exhibit common patterns, there are significant variations, indicating that there is no definitive model of regional development.
