Content

This unit provides students the opportunity to learn about relevant regional development theories and models, their particular contribution to an understanding of regional and rural development processes and their applicability in practice in different contexts, both in Australia and overseas.

Upon the successful completion of this unit, students should be able to analyse the economic situation of any particular region through the application of relevant theories and models as well as suggest possible development policies for the region of interest.

Learning activities in this unit are organised for students to explore relevant theories and models including those related to economic growth (e.g. trade-led/exposed growth), uneven spatial development (e.g. spatial polarisation), endogenous territorial development, and ecological-economy models.
