Regional policy problems are universal. This means that all countries need good methods for analyzing and solving their regional problems. Models for regional policymaking and planning have also been worked out in scientific institutions. It is obvious that these abstract models are often not specific enough to be used in policymaking but have to be adapted to the institutional, historical and natural conditions of the specific models within a comprehensive system analytical framework. It is one of the ambitions with the approach to regional case studies reported in this paper, to test the possibility of applying regional policy models to the solution of regional development problems and to regional planning issues. This paper describes briefly the work on this topic undertaken by scholars within the Regional Development Task and elsewhere at IIASA.
