Cities in Demographic Change
New Perspectives for East Central Europe

Deutsche Fassung


Apart from capital cities Warsaw and Prague, demographic developments in Poland and the Czech Republic are leading to a situation where the big cities are losing people. In particular, the inner-cities are facing enormous changes. This shrinkage and the social change connected with it demand new perspectives in urban research and communal policy.
