The ARL – Academy for Territorial Development in the Leibniz Association is currently establishing an International Working Group “Beyond the process – Finding common ground for a discussion on planning’s substantial foundation” and is looking for participants. The members of the working group will work for approximately three years together and address the topic from inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives.
About the Academy
The ARL is an interdisciplinary forum for research and practice in which spatial and planning-related knowledge is generated and communicated in dialogue. The ARL is a member of the German Leibniz Association and a non-university forum and competence center for sustainable spatial development. The research focus is on spatial structures and developments, their causes and effects, and policy and planning options for their management. The work of the Academy is characterized by holistic, integrative and future-oriented perspectives taken on complex spatial challenges. The close honorary cooperation of actors from spatial and planning-related research and practice forms the core of the Academy’s work. In its function as a transdisciplinary network, the ARL researches spatial structures and developments as the basis and expression of social practice. It is also a place of scientific reflection on planning.
