Abstract:

ABSTRACT.

Research on the service industries has changed radically over the past few decades. Not only has work proliferated, but service research has further developed towards a deeper and more nuanced understanding of particular categories of services activities. However, as most research has focused on large and often densely populated economies, and on large multinational corporations, there is a risk that processes and phenomena relevant to more peripheral or smaller economies, perhaps with a more dispersed pattern of settlements and economic activities, are left unaccounted for. Drawing on contributions to the Inaugural Nordic Geographers Meeting held in Lund in 2005, this article introduces a special issue containing a selection of papers that set out to fill some of the gaps.

Keywords: Nordic countries; economic geography; service industries
