The joint project examines potentials and problems of former urban redevelopment neighbourhoods ("Stadtumbauquartiere") in transition to arrival neighbourhoods for immigrants. The joint project is divided into five sub-projects. Sub-project 1 "Governance" is being worked on at the IRS. It examines planning principles and actor constellations in the cities of Cottbus, Schwerin and Halle (Saale) to enable better governance of change by municipal actors. The conception, implementation and utilisation of the results are closely interlinked with the other sub-projects of the research network and should contribute to the development of recommendations for action that are adapted to the respective local contexts and can be implemented.
