Combined presentation of contributions reflecting the current political discussion and the approaches and experience of researchers in Central and Eastern Europe.
The main research topics and the discussion among researchers and governmental representatives are featured in this study. In the first chapter, government officials give insight into the current development of the European Spatial Planning Policy. Following this, research reports on developments around the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea make political strategies apparent. This unique combination of the discussion of strategies for sustainable regional development in Europe with different CEE research reports is an important source of information not just for experts in central and eastern Europe. Moreover, it documents the state of the art in regional science and gives an impression of what development strategies mean in view of a major European region.
