Marjan Nikolov the president of CEA has been appointed as an Ambasador for Reginal studies association(RSA) to Macedonia.

The Regional Studies Association works with its international membership to facilitate the highest standards of theoretical development, empirical analysis and policy debate of issues at this sub-national scale, incorporating both the urban and rural and different conceptions of space such as city-regions and interstitial spaces. They are , for example, interested in  issues of economic development and growth, conceptions of territory and its governance and in thorny problems of equity and injustice.

The Association’s journals, magazines and books, along with their global-to-local series of conferences and events position us as a key forum in shaping and disseminating advances    in regional studies and science. Members come from economics, geography, political science, planning and sociology backgrounds. Most work in academia but many are working in  policy and practice, and membership is truly global.
