The Core-Periphery Pattern. Methods to Measure the Peripherality
The subject considered (e.g. dividing a country into a developed center and a periphery underdeveloped) was the subject of early researches in regional development. This paper aims to present the studies from the literature undertaken in the domain of a center-periphery structure. In the first part of the paper are brought into discussion some clarification on the term “peripherality”. The paper continues with a brief presentation of the core-periphery pattern developed by Krugman and reviewing the improvements to the pattern. Also, this paper brought into discussion the main methods to measure the peripherality. As a conclusion it is emphasized the usefulness of an economical approach for peripherality that can lead to the development of a composite index for measuring the peripherality.
