Working Paper Series

CEG Papers in Economic Geography (CPEG) is a working paper series published by the Centre for Economic Geography (CEG) at the School of Planning and Geography, Cardiff University.

Submitted papers will be reviewed by the editors, and in the first instance should be sent to Robert Huggins ( or Gillian Bristow (
