    Regional science comprises the body of knowledge in which the spatial dimension plays a fundamental role, such as regional economics, resource management, location theory, urban and regional planning, transport and communication, human geography, population distribution, landscape ecology, and environmental quality. The agricultural location theory contained in the von Thunen model is a leading example. The European Union is one such organizationurban morphology the study of the physical form and structure of urban places. toward a new loci of economic activity at the urban fringe. urban realm. a spatial generalization of the large, late-twentieth.

Structural change model focuses on the mechanism by which underdeveloped economies transform their domestic economic structures from a heavy emphasis on traditional subsistence agriculture to a more modern, more urbanized and more industrially diverse manufacturing and service economy.

Yet, none of these findings should really be a surprise. They are accounted for logically by the classic theory of agricultural location in the tradition es- tablished by J. von Thiinen, and since elaborated on by many location theo- rists and regional scientists.

Regional economics is a sub-discipline of economics and is often regarded as one of the fields of the social sciences. It addresses the economic aspect of the regional problems that are spatially analyzable so that theoretical or policy implications can be derived with respect to regions whose geographical scope ranges from local to global areas.

Urban and regional planning is a notion that encompasses the whole set of social activities aimed at anticipating, representing and regulating the development of an urban or a regional.

Urban economics is broadly the economic study of urban areas; as such, it involves using the tools of economics to analyze urban issues such as crime, education, public transit, housing, and local government finance.

More narrowly, it is a branch of microeconomics that studies urban spatial structure and the location. A Journal of the Regional Studies Association. Instructions for authors. Society information.

M y first principle of urban economics doesn’t mean that every city’s fate is preordained. That brings us to my second: when cities do experience dramatic changes in their growth paths, the reason is almost always outside.

Central-place theory, in geography, an element of location theory (q.v.) concerning the size and distribution of central places (settlements) within a l-place theory attempts to illustrate how settlements locate in relation to one another, the amount of market area a central place can control, and why some central places function as hamlets, villages, towns, or cities.

HUMAN CAPITAL AND URBAN-REGIONAL GROWTH Over the past decade or so, a potentially more powerful theory for city and regional growth has emerged. This theory postulates that people are the motor force behind re-gional growth. Its proponents thus refer to it as the “human capital” theory of regional development.

Economic development has traditionally been seen as the first form of development. It has often been strictly associated with the concept of economic growth, in turn defined as an increase in the per capita income of the economic system. Indeed, growth defined in this way can be seen more as the result of an economic development process, i.e.
