Regional Issues

The clear significance of several aspects of the transformation currently taking place in German society, becomes especially apparent in a regional context. Consequently, regional analysis, whether describing inter-regional factors or looking at individual regions, is an important area for multi-disciplinary research on a range of issues with regional significance. Our regional expertise stretches from analysis of labour markets and urban growth to the effects of Energy and Climate Protection Policy (cf. GWS Energy and Climate division).
