Inhalte der LV

GMLP 1 focusses on key concepts of the concentration area. It deals with a variety of understandings and uses of (multi-level) governance, globalization and power.

It deals with interrelated development processes on various spatial levels (from urban/local/regional to European and global). We will deal with uneven development at these levels, theoretical concepts for understanding this development, the role and behaviour of key actors (firms, public and political actors, civil society organisations) and institutions as well as with multi-level governance approaches targeting this development.
