Governance in städtischen Entwicklungskrisen. Die Verarbeitung städtischer Schrumpfungsprozesse im internationalen Vergleich

Urban shrinking processes are increasingly understood as a phenomenon for research in urban politics. This encompasses entire cities, parts of them and metropolitan areas experiencing a fundamental decline in both their economic and social bases. In a rather narrow perspective shrinkage is focused on changing demographic processes. However, shrinkage can also be interpreted in a broader sense, encompassing structural, economical and social changes. Shrinkage is most commonly used with a negative connotation referring to a decline in population and incipient structural abandonment. In the absence of a well-defined model explaining the interplay of specific national reform efforts at a local level, and simultaneous urban shrinking processes, this project aims to contribute to a better understanding.
