Abstract

This book focuses on the economic issues and mechanisms of border-regions. Located at the edges of political regions, border-regions are usually far away from their respective political and economic cores, and hence have only relatively low efficient interactions and trade with their respective core regions. One important goal of this book is to establish a theoretical framework for border-regional economics which is closely related to but different from regional economics. It provides a definition of some fundamental concepts relating to border-regional economics and a series of case studies on border-regions with different natural, geographical features, and social and political structures. The author also develops some specific propositions and mathematical models in order to analyse the spatial characteristics and operational mechanisms of border regions.The book is organised as follows: Chapter 1 clarifies some fundamental concepts relating to political regions, regional borders and border-regions. Chapter 2 sketches a theoretical framework for border-regional economics. The geographical and political separations in border-regions are examined in Chapter 3, while Chapter 4 explores more empirical evidence for the cross-border interdependence between adjacent political regions. In Chapter 5 a static model of spatial economies is constructed to explain the spatial economic performances of border-regions. Chapter 6 proposes two basic approaches for border-regional development, Chapter 7 introduces some ongoing cross-border co-operation programmes and, finally, Chapter 8 develops a regional cost-benefit analysis (RCBA) framework.
