Institutionelle Aspekte der Regionalisierung von Wirtschafts- und Strukturpolitik


Author Info

Registered author(s):


    Infolge der Regionalisierung von Wirtschafts- und Strukturpolitik entstehen entweder vollkommen neue Institutionen (horizontale Regionalisierung) oder Institutionen mit neuen Kompetenzen (vertikale Regionalisierung). Der Erfolg einer Regionalisierungspolitik läßt sich am Grad der institutionellen Kohärenz zwischen den beteiligten Institutionen und Ebenen ablesen. Die institutionelle Kohärenz wiederum hängt ab (1) von den besonderen institutionellen Implikationen der zu regionalisierenden wirtschaftspolitischen Handlungsansätze, (2) von der Qualität der regionalen Institution und (3) von der sogenannten Institutionenpolitik des Initiators der Regionalisierung. Der Aufsatz umreißt ein Analysedesign für jede der drei Aspekte, illustriert ihre Anwendung am Beispiel der Regionen in Sachsen-Anhalt, und formuliert – nach einer Vergleichsuntersuchung der Strukturen verschiedener Regionalisierungsansätze – Hypothesen über die Wirkungen diverserer institutionenpolitischer Maßnahmen auf die Qualität und Kohärenz regionaler Institutionen. -- Regionalization of economic policy creates either completely new institutions (horizontal regionalization) or institutions with new competences (vertical regionalization). The success of a policy towards regionalization can be measured by the degree of institutional coherence between all involved institutions and levels. This institutional coherence depends (1) on the special institutional implications of the economic policy approach that is to be regionalized, (2) the quality of the institution at the regional level, and (3) on the so called institutional policy that is to be implemented by the initiator of the regionalization. The article stretches a research design for these three aspects, illustrates its application by way of the example Saxony-Anhalt/Germany, and – after having compared the structure of several regionalization approaches – formulates hypothesises on the effects of various institutional policy measures concerning quality and coherence of regional institutions.
