Call for Papers: Regions in Transition III: Recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic

Issue 11 > Regions in Transition III: Recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic

The last issue of 2021 concludes the theme of Regions in Transition by discussing the future of cities and regions in the recovery from COVID-19. The COVID-19 pandemic has touched all parts of the world and brought many changes to almost all aspects of life. With many places seeing a reduction in restrictions and increasing levels of vaccination, the focus in many places has turned to recovering from the impact that COVID-19 has caused since the beginning of 2020. We welcome articles from a range of perspectives relating to the recovery from COVID-19. This includes articles investigating new forms of research that has emerged as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and/or comparing recovery processes across geographies, as well as sectors of activity and their performance in terms of employability. New planning practices and policies have also been called in the debate, questioning the morphology of cities, the relationship between density and healthy cities, the emergence of new working spaces, transport dynamics and the availability of green infrastructures for further urban and regional resilience.

The deadline for submissions to Issue 11 is 25th November 2021, with publication due in early December 2021.
