Metropolitan Studies and Structural Change

Networks in the Ruhr Area (1997- 1998)

This project analyses socioeconomic and regional policy changes in the Ruhr Area. Besides relevant socieeconomic data the legal framework of regional economic change as well as assistance programmes of different political levels from the European Union down to individual local governments are considered. In addition the actors of the regional reconstruction and their action fields are identified. Particular attention is paid to groups involved in education, employment, social or environmental initiatives. These informations are the basis for an evaluation of the implementation of assistance programmes in economic, social and ecological terms. It is planned to compile a documentation of relevant actors and their ideas, objectives and action fields. The documentation is to indicate similarities and potential areas of cooperation in the planning and implementation phases and so to improve the cooperation between groups having an interest in planning processes.
