Crisis and new geographies of finance in European regions between social inclusion and resilience of the territories


Organizer

Maria Giuseppina Lucia, University of Turin (Italy)


Description

The most recent geographical studies are characterized by noteworthy and high quality research that concerns the interrelationship between the financial economy, the real economy and geographical space. The crisis in 2007-2008 in particular has further awoken interest among geographers who now pay greater attention to the original function of the financial sector as a motor for regional development and to the possibility to counteract the growing autonomy of finance from the real economy. However, there are many themes as yet unexplored in this field that have emerged in the light of the recent crisis, such as the increase in social inequalities, connected with the problems of the exclusion of families and businesses from access to credit, the impacts on welfare programmes and the labour market, the impacts on the measures drawn up by the European Union to tackle these problems and to face up to the new geopolitical equilibria that are emerging on the global scene.

Following these considerations, we propose, within the scope of the programme of the IV EUGEO Congress, a session aimed at widening the themes of interest in financial geography with special attention paid to: i. effects deriving from the crisis on local contexts; ii. the role of finance in the process of social inclusion/exclusion; iii. problems of resource redistribution for harmonious development in the European Union and the reorganization of the financial system in the light of the objectives of Europe 2020.
