Regional policies usually are formulated in the context of individual nations. However, many regions are directly and significantly affected by proximity to an international frontier. This paper examines border regions from the viewpoint of location theory and the growth center literature, and suggests research directions for the study of opportunities that could be realized in border regions as a consequence of economic integration across national boundaries.
