The joint research project “ReGerecht” funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research aims at developing and implementing solutions for a fair balance of interests between city, suburbs, and rural areas. It seeks to answer two core questions: How do regional land use conflicts arise? And: How can just solutions for these land use conflicts be found?
As part of a project consortium of seven scientific and practice partners, the IRS focuses on problems of regional infrastructures, mainly looking at the energy-infrastructure nexus and urban-rural relationships. It analyses spatial and socio-technical constellations with respect to informal institutions and questions of spatial justice and infrastructural criticality. The work package positions itself in international theoretical debates on “energy justice”, “spatial justice” and “infrastructural justice”. The joint research project is coordinated by the Leibniz Centre for Agricultural Landscape Research (ZALF) in Müncheberg.
