Comparative Regional Policy is a major research program of the European Union Centre at RMIT, drawing on expertise associated with the Centre and with RMIT’s College of Design and Social Context.
This program addresses significant issues that arise in conjunction with the European Union’s implementation of its Regional and Cohesion Policies, as well as the renewed emphasis on regional development policy in Australia and in key Asian countries such as Korea, China and Vietnam.
The principal focus of the program is on the development of partnerships with major stakeholders in the field, as well as on further preliminary conceptual and related field studies.
In relation to this, the Centre has drawn together a network of esteemed Australian and international regional development researchers and policy linkages and is developing a set of priority research projects.
