Regional policy is a powerful part of a government's toolkit for promoting economic prosperity. It comes in many forms and can be used to target growth in weak regions or support stronger ones.

This textbook provides a comprehensive and systematic coverage of regional policy, dealing with core theory and looking at contemporary challenges in practice. Structured in three parts, the book opens with an exploration of regional policy's aims and rationale. The second part is devoted to issues of implementation, including a chapter on specific contexts such as regional policy under austerity, plus a chapter on regional policy across the world. The third part addresses regional policy evaluation and statistics and modelling in policymaking.

Each chapter contains real-life examples of a regional policy topic in action, and also highlights advanced topics for curious students. On top of this, there is a companion website with PowerPoint slides, images from the book, and links to relevant websites, policy documents and further reading.

With its broad coverage of the subject, Regional Policy will prove a valuable resource for advanced students, researchers and practitioners in regional policy, regional science, economic geography, planning and public policy.
