Summary This article examines and proposes connections between resource and economic geography from an institutional perspective. Economic geography urgently needs to more substantively embrace resources from its theoretical purview while resource geography's established approaches can be enriched by economic geography's focus on space–place relations, institutional interests and power structures, and the influence of markets on resource use. The article progressively elaborates on the themes of natural resource governance, property rights, evolutionary and spatial dynamics, resource markets, their coordination in value chains and cycles, and the nature of resource peripheries and their remapping that is driven by conflicting institutional considerations.
