'Left Behind Places': Findings of a Cross-National Study
The European Week of Regions and Cities is an annual four-day event during which cities and regions showcase their capacity to create growth and jobs, implement European Union cohesion policy, and prove the importance of the local and regional level for good European governance.
The 2023 Week takes between 9-12 October 2023 and is held in-person in Brussels. More on the #EURegionsWeek can be found here.
As in previous years, the learned societies (European Regional Science Association ERSA, Association of European Schools of Planning AESOP and the Regional Studies Association European Foundation RSA Europe) led by RSA Europe collate and develop sessions that showcase the best of new research to the largely policy audience at the #EURegionsWeek.

‘Left Behind Places’: Findings of a Cross-National Study – Wednesday 11th October, 09.30-10.30 CEST
The term ‘left-behind places’ has emerged as a topic of great interest to researchers and policy-makers, focusing particularly on regions in post-industrial transition. This session will present findings from a cross-national research project on ‘left behind places’ in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. The session will focus on three sets of findings: trajectories of regional change; patterns of residential mobility and immobility; and, employment, access to services and place.
