Monográfico 2020 - "Rethinking Cross-Border Entrepreneurship"

In the new stage of Revista de Economía Laboral (REL), the journal devotes a volume annually to a special issue. The topic chosen by the Chair of Directors of the AEET and the Editorial Board of REL for the 2020 Special Issue has been "Cross-Border and Regional Entrepreneurship".

On December 16th 2020 the University of Huelva organised the International Workshop “Rethinking Cross-Border Entrepreneurship” gathering together researchers and practitioners with different academic and policy backgrounds. Papers presented in the workshop will be considered for potential publication in the journal, but REL also invites additional contributions to this special issue from other national and international experts working on this topic from an economic perspective.

Dr. Monica Carmona (University of Huelva) and Dr. Concepción Román (University of Huelva) will coordinate the special issue. Full-text proposals (no longer than 12000 words) can be submitted by email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view before February 15th 2021. Guest editors of the special issue will only select high-quality original contributions that will be subjected to peer-review evaluation following the journal’s standard practices. The special issue will be published during Spring 2021.

Interested contributors can also contact the editors or the guest editors by e-mail for additional information regarding the special issue.
