Regional Studies Association
The Regional Studies Association is a major international learned society that is concerned with the analysis of regions and regional issues. Through its international membership, the RSA provides an authoritative voice of, and network for, academics, students, practitioners, policy makers and interested lay people in the field of regional studies.
The Regional Studies Association (RSA) organises frequent events and conferences, and publishes the journals Regional Studies and Spatial Economic Analysis, its "Regions and Cities" book series with the publisher Taylor and Francis, and its newsletter, Regions.
The RSA’s Research Networks are formed by RSA members to organise a series of events to examine an issue of collective interest. The Association offers grants of up to a maximum of £3000 to members wishing to establish a Research Network.
The Association comprises a large number of branches and country sections.
Sir Peter was awarded the RSA's Prize for Outstanding Contribution to the field of Regional Studies at the RSA's Presidential Lunch held at the House of Commons in September 2008.
The RSA is a member society of the Academy of Social Sciences, previously known as the Academy of Learned Societies in the Social Sciences.
