The Australia New Zealand Regional Science Association International Inc (ANZRSAI) is part of an international association concerned with all the aspects of regional analysis and development.
The Association began with academic origins but has expanded over time to include policy advisers and practitioners who implement regional policies and projects.
ANZRSAI hosts an annual conference on some topic of regional science, publishes a refereed academic journal (Australasian Journal of Regional Studies), distributes a regular newsletter (Sustaining Regions), and provides members with information and access to international and national networks relevant for regional studies.
Members of ANZRSAI are automatically members of our international association, the Regional Science Association International. Members receive the newsletter by email and have immediate access to each issue of the Australasian Journal of Regional Studies as it appears.
Participants in our annual conference receive complimentary membership for the following year; others are invited to join ANZRSAI through this website.
