Abstract

In the era of globalization regions have to compete between them for resources. Ultimate success of the region in competition largely depends on the mobilization of the regional manpower. Mobilization in favor of common goals can only be achieved through positive identification of society. If the goal is to develop the region, then it is inevitable positive identification of the regional population with its region. Moreover, according to a constructivist approach to the region is the existence of a regional identity prerequisite for the existence of the region in practice. This paper is particularly devoted to regional consciousness and its impact on the regional development. The first part of the paper discusses further the concept of regional identity and its role in regional development, in the second part we apply theoretical knowledge to the research on the regional consciousness of the inhabitants of the Slovak-Polish border region. Region is due to the availability of the data defined as Slovak-Polish border NUTS III regions.

Keywords: regional consciousness, regional development, identity of the region, soft factors of development, identification process, Slovak-Polish border region
