Overview

The editors (all of Jonkoping International Business School, Jonkoping U., Sweden) present 12 revised lectures and papers originally presented at a 2002 meeting of the European Advanced Studies Institute in Regional Science. The papers look at the emerging market economies of the expanded European Union and address, in three separate sections, interregional and international trade issues; regional issues and migration issues; and fiscal, financial, and environmental policy issues. Examples of individual topics include cross-border cooperation and local development in the Eastern Poland border regions, regional specialization and employment dynamics in transition countries, traditional and new causes of regional inequalities in Hungary, and the magnitude and potential determinants of foreign direct investment inflows to the transition economies in Eastern Europe.
