Abstract

Die ungleiche Entwicklung von Städten und Regionen steht gegenwärtig nicht nur in Deutschland im Brennpunkt gesellschaftlicher und politischer Aufmerksamkeit. Die Sorge vor einem weiteren Aufreißen der Lücken zwischen Stadt und Land und zwischen Gewinner- und Verliererregionen des Strukturwandels sitzt tief und damit auch die Sorge vor sozialen und politischen Verwerfungen. Vor diesem Hintergrund widmet sich dieser Beitrag drei Fragen. Wie lässt sich die Entwicklung von Städten und Regionen erklären? Was sind zentrale Treiber der Regionalentwicklung? Was soll und was kann Regionalpolitik leisten?
