In Agglomerationsräumen ist typischerweise eine ökonomisch-demographische Differenzierung in relativ homogene, voneinander sehr verschiedene Teilgebiete zu beobachten. Die in der Raumforschung als "Segregation" bezeichnete "Entmischung", z.B. die Ballung von Dienstleistungsfunktionen in den Zentren der Städte, ist offenbar charakteristisch für Agglomerationsprozesse. Ungeklärt ist, inwieweit sich regionale Agglomeration und Segregation wechselseitig bedingen. Dabei ist die Frage, ob regionale Agglomeration erst durch eine interne Segmentation zu vorteilhaften externen Bedingungen führt, keineswegs nur von theoretischer Bedeutung. In der Regionalpolitik werden viele Maßnahmen durchgeführt, die aufVermutungen hinsichtlich der Zusammenhänge zwischen Agglomeration und Segregation beruhen. Momentan wird eher über negativeWirkungen der regionsinternen Differenzierung diskutiert. Dabei geht es um die Hypothese, die zukünftigen Arbeitsmarktprobleme könnten zur Verstärkung sozioökonomischer und raumwirtschaftlicher Ungleichheiten führen..[...]
