dc.description.abstractEconomic historians and geographers have recognised a ‘dualism’ in the economic developmentof the UK – a divide between the northern and southern parts of the country - datingback over several centuries. The ‘regional problem’ in the UK has become increasingly difficultto define and categorise in simple terms. As in other countries, processes of regional andlocal restructuring have created a complex map of socio-economic change. During the 1980s,a frequently used concept was that of the ‘North South divide’, contrasting the differences betweentwo parts of the country divided by a line from the River Severn to the Wash. This chapterreviews regional disparities in the UK, a country illustrative in many aspects of regionaldynamics in other parts of the EU. The chapter begins by reviewing the historical context andlong-term trends in regional disparities, before examining current spatial patterns and contemporarypolicy debates on the regional problem.en
