Conclusions: Imagining, perceiving, constructing, explaining, and understanding regions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


In this concluding chapter we refer back to the four main research questions of the book – (1) What comprises a region?; (2) What are the different regional dynamic processes that take place?; (3) What is the relationship between the regional and the global dimensions?; and (4) What is the role of identity building when studying regions and trans-regional processes? These questions serve as anchor to our search for common patterns across disciplines and to engaging in a fruitful dialogue between Social Sciences and the Humanities. We derive several insights and conclusions from this intellectual dialogue, arguing for a multi-disciplinary approach to assess the relevance of regions in our globalized world.
