Territorial Discrepancies In The Rural-Urban Fringe Zone Of Bucharest
The rural-urban fringe area of Bucharest is the most economically dynamic region of Romania, and, at the same time, is the one, which suffered the most from the recent economic decline. The article is focused on the analysis of inequalities of social-economic variables, including differences in their spatial patterns, before and after the 2008 economic crisis. We involved two methods of inequality analysis. Gini coefficient was used to determine the overall level of inequalities in the region. Comparison with the region’s mean value was used for identification of spatial patterns of these inequalities. Our results highlight four trends in the overall level of inequality dynamics, while all the studied variables follow more or less accurately the same pattern of spatial dynamics. Our findings provide new arguments in support of the idea that the new processes in the Bucharest fringe zone follow the circular pattern, which privileges the northern part of the area, while south is the last to benefit from any new development.
