Introductory Remarks: The Case for Fringe Regionalism
Mattheis, Raineri and Russo present the main rationale of their book on fringe regionalism and explain the need for scientific concepts that can be applied to seemingly marginal regions. The authors emphasise that agency and space in state peripheries have been largely overlooked by the literature on regionalisms. The concept of fringe regionalism turns the focus upside down to instead look at how a marginal position can be a key feature, constituting the centre of its own region.
