Registration for online conference Cities and Metropolises in France and Germany is open!

A French-German ARL working group compared the current situation of cities and metropolises as well as small and medium sized towns in France and Germany and published the results recently in the book “Cities and Metropolises in France and Germany”. The book will also soon be available in German and French in the ARL webshop.

In the book, the authors analyse the embeddedness of metropolises and small and medium sized towns in the respective territorial and administrative structures and their importance and effects on settlement structures. In the context of the specific spatial planning systems and their relation to other planning issues, the authors look at differences and similarities as well as the current challenges France and Germany are facing in spatial and urban development.

The authors and experts from other European countries discuss and broaden their perspective on converging European spatial and urban development policies in an online event on March 14, 2023.

You can find detailed information about the event and register at the event website.
