Urban and Regional Research

Doctoral dissertations contribute to academic and societal knowledge and discussion concerning the developments and transformations in metropolitan areas and their dynamically changing neighbourhoods through research into social and socio-spatial processes which are key drivers of urban spatial reorganisation, such as revitalisation, gentrification, or suburbanisation. Research methods span from quantitative analyses of social and spatial phenomena and processes to qualitative insights into the mechanisms and drivers of urban and regional change.
