Chapter 7: Regeneration economies: a research agenda: governance, policy and regional development
The relationship between governance, policy and regional development is explored in this chapter through a discussion of the processes and actors implicated in regeneration economies and their respective, observed roles in contributing to regional growth and decline. It draws upon examples primarily from the US, to highlights how empirical research on regional growth and change is indeed contributing to a research agenda that is informing policy development that is capable of supporting economic regeneration. A key question that is considered is: “what then can regional studies say about what we know about what works (and what does not) in building a set of policies that promote regeneration economies—supported at the national scale and implemented at the regional scale?” It is noted that ultimately the answer to this question is both retrospective in cataloguing what can be gleaned from the preponderance of existing evidence and it is prospective in setting the agenda for future research. This chapter highlights key aspects of that future research agenda.
