This special issue of the Fraser Economic Commentary presents a diverse selection of papers on peripheral economies. These are a sample of papers presented at an international conference of the Regional Studies Association (RSA) research network on Peripherality, Marginality and Border Issues in Northern Europe in September 2012. The conference was hosted by the University Centre of the Westfjords in Ísafjörður, Iceland. This followed previous successful standalone events organized by the network in Norway and Scotland, as well as various special sessions at other RSA events. The papers are diverse in terms of the geographical areas they focus on, both within the UK and its neighbours in the Nordic countries. The methods are diverse, as are the disciplinary backgrounds of the participants.
