Analysing regional development and policy: a structural-realist approach, Regional Studies. This paper gives an overview of theories and models that can be used to analyse regional development as well as to design policies and strategies for the future of regions and localities. It evaluates the analytical and policy relevance of these models, and as it moves towards analytical synthesis, it makes some recommendations for a structural-realist approach to spatial development analysis. It offers a methodological framework for contemporary spatial development analysis by combining regulationist, cultural political economy and network theoretical approaches, and taking full cognisance of the structural-institutional, scalar, and cultural dimensions of development processes and strategies.
