Impacts of Demographic Change in Regional Differentiation: Similarities and Contradictions Between Rural Areas of Depopulation in Germany— The Example of the Regions West Pomerania and West Eifel

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 153 - 168

Abstract

Abstract

This article analyses two peripheral rural regions: West Eifel and West Pomerania in Germany. Both are affected by demographic change and are subject to distinct shrinking and ageing processes. There are many similarities between the two regions, but also serious contradictions. The demographic change does not have the same effect in both research areas. Hence the article looks into the subject, under which specific conditions the explosiveness of the demographic change is going to be intensified or diminished.

Regional Policy Reactions to Demographic Change in Sparsely Populated, Peripheral Areas: Evidence from a Survey in Germany

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 169 - 180

Abstract

Abstract

Sparsely populated, peripheral areas are particularly affected by demographic changes. Regional policy offers a framework for reacting to the resulting challenges. The research question is: how does regional policy in sparsely populated, peripheral areas react to the challenges of demographic change? The contribution presents empirical survey data of the current practice. For this purpose, always one representative of regional development initiatives and counties (Landkreise) were asked to answer the questionnaire. The results indicate the application of counteraction strategies, the pursued spatial decentralisation, the dominance of public actors and the utilisation of strategic planning concepts. In the dimension of the mode of interaction, no clear tendency could be detected. Here, co-operation and unilateral action seem to coincide in practice.

Neighbourhood Development 2030: Protagonists, Key Factors and Future Trends—Results of a Delphi-Study

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 181 - 194

Abstract

Abstract

Demographic change coupled with fluctuating housing market regions in Germany will increasingly affect the mostly ignored meso level of neighbourhoods. In that context the two stage Delphi-study (2007/2008), titled „Demographic Impact in Urban Neighborhoods“, analyzes basic protagonists, key factors and future trends of neighbourhood development. The study includes fundamental questions like: Which neighbourhoods will be specifically affected by demographic impacts in the future? What are the strengths and weaknesses of certain neighbourhood types? How will neighbourhoods develop until 2030? What metatrends of neighbourhood development are recognizable? Which neighbourhoods have stronger chances of development: the homogeneously or heterogeneously age-structured ones?

Impact of Demographic Change in a Winning Region: A Small-Scale Analysis of the Population Development in the Growing City Hamburg

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 195 - 206

Abstract

Abstract

Due to a constant immigration of young people (students, apprentices and young employees) cities developing prosperously, like Hamburg, Germany, seem to be not affected by consequences of demographic change like population ageing in the first place. A small-scale analysis of the demographic change within the city shows, that the monofunctional residential areas in the suburban districts are not positively affected by the immigration. The population in these areas shows, in contrast, a significant concentration of older people. This development will become increasingly important for urban planning practice and urban policy in the near future.

  • Ageing
  • Residential mobility

Ageing in a Large Housing Estate: The Impact of Network Support

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 207 - 217

Abstract

Abstract

The article investigates the activities of a network in Berlin that aims to enable elderly people to live independently in their own homes as long as possible. The investigation covered problems and potentials of a large housing estate as a place to grow old as well as the effects of networking in a neighbourhood. Qualitative and quantitative methods were used, including spatial analyses, participant observation, structured interviews, group discussions and a questionnaire. The results show that elderly residents value the estate as a good place to live. The network definitely has a positive impact in terms of providing support in the residential setting and identifying structural deficits. Involving informal multipliers from the neighbourhood in the network’s operation represents a notable and hitherto insufficiently utilized potential.

Location Factor “Ambulatory Medical Care”: Debates and Strategies in the Federal State of Hessen

Published Online: 30 Jun 2010
Page range: 219 - 229

Abstract

Abstract

Due to an increasing lack of doctors in many regions of Germany the location of the ambulatory medical care has become a significant focus of politics and the administration. The report at hand shows the starting conditions of the ambulatory medical care as exemplified within different parts of Hessen. The currently used planning tools of control, especially with respect to its influence on the medical care situation are to be analyzed as well. Based on a critical analysis of the efficiency of these planning tools the focus is put on the currently discussed new action strategies for ensuring and optimizing the ambulatory medical care as a contributing factor in securing equal living conditions throughout Hessen. Finally, this debate will be evaluated.
