Social and Regional Transformation

 Our society and environment are in a process of continuous change accompanied by global challenges that have regional effects. Research can analyse the problems inherent in transformation processes and can develop options for action geared to the solving of social and spatial issues. The research focus on social and regional transformation is hence closely allied to the focus on urban futures and thematizes several fields of conflict – between individual needs and the objectives of communities, between participation and sharing, and between the overall parameters (e.g. urban district management) and external factors (e.g. climate change) relevant to urban developmental processes.
