About Us

Regional development problems have been seizing the attention of the scientific and professional public worldwide for many decades. The world economy's modern conditions make these problems even more topical, and their forms are increasingly challenging for scientific research.

One of the few institutions from this part of Europe that has for decades been monitoring and pointing out the problems and multidimensionality of regional development is the Faculty of Economics of the University of Niš, which traditionally organizes conferences dedicated to precisely this issue.


The 29th "Regional Development and Demographic Flows of Southeastern European Countries" conference will be held on June 28th, 2024, at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Niš.

This prestigious event gathers many scientists and experts from the country and abroad. Moreover, the number of participants at this conference, from an ever-growing number of countries, is increasing yearly.
