Call for Papers for a special issue on Regional management of growth: strategic and instrumental design in intermunicipal operational arrangements



This special issue intends to fill this gap. It will include cross-sectional contributions on the content and effects of growth management as well as regional case studies. These will highlight specific methods and practices in their regional and local planning context. In order to provide examples (projects or studies) from the practice of spatial development and spatial planning, international case studies and comparative studies are explicitly envisaged. Thus, German developments are to be considered reasonably and also in an international context. The aim is to learn from best practice and particularly from the successful implementation of strategies. Governance must also be improved in border regions. International contributions to the special issue are therefore very welcome!
