Theories and models of the peri-urban interface.

Abstract

The aim of this literature review is to examine the complexity of the theoretical discussion on concepts and models of regional development, where the peri-urban interface finds a theoretical place within the broader literature on rural-urban interactions and linkages. The validity of a rather old concept (first discussions date from the 1950s) will be assessed, and its evolution when confronted with new theoretical contexts such as globalisation will be examined.
