The project “Two worlds apart? Comparing local integration politics in urban and rural municipalities” analyses institutional change in approximately 100 municipalities in the aftermath of 2015/16. The project focuses in particular on ‘urban-rural-comparisons’ and the divergence/convergence between regions that differ significantly regarding their economic prosperity. Moreover, we analyze the role of societal actors and their co-operation with local administration.
The project runs between September 2017 and December 2019 and is funded by the Robert-Bosch-Stiftung.
