20th Associação Portuguesa para o Desenvolvimento Regional (APDR) Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • It is our plea­sure to announce the 20th Con­gress of the Asso­ci­ação Por­tuguesa para o Desen­volvi­mento Regional (APDR), to be held at the Uni­ver­sity of Évora in Évora, Por­tu­gal on July 10 – 11, 2014.

    Main theme: Renais­sance of the Regions of South­ern Europe

    In the recent years, the south­ern Europe coun­tries expe­ri­enced, par­tic­u­larly aggra­vated, the eco­nomic cri­sis that affected much of the west­ern world. This cri­sis has thus helped to exac­er­bate the exist­ing inequal­i­ties between the North and South of Europe. After sev­eral decades away from lev­els of devel­op­ment and eco­nomic growth recorded else­where and the con­sid­er­able efforts in terms of regional devel­op­ment poli­cies, the south­ern regions of Europe need to find your way.

    Thus, this con­gress will seek to answer the fol­low­ing questions:

    • What con­di­tions are nec­es­sary for the eco­nomic revival of south­ern Europe?
    • What is wrong in regional devel­op­ment poli­cies pur­sued so far?
    • How can coun­tries of south­ern Europe to improve their lev­els of development?
    • The bound­ary between Europe and the Mediter­ranean is a threat or an opportunity?
    • How can South­ern Europe take advan­tage of the con­nec­tion to the South Atlantic?

    The 2014 APDR Con­gress will work through ple­nary ses­sions, con­fer­ences and round tables, work­shops and par­al­lel ses­sions. Par­al­lel ses­sions will include: i) abstracts sub­mit­ted to Reg­u­lar Ses­sions (RS), pro­posed by the orga­ni­za­tion; and ii) abstracts sub­mit­ted to Spe­cial Ses­sions (SS), pro­posed by par­tic­i­pants and dis­cus­sion top­ics included in work­shops pro­posed by the participants.
