27.09.2017 - 29.09.2017 | Leipzig, Germany
The EU-funded REGPOL2 project will be hosting its final conference in Leipzig, Germany, from 27 to 29 September 2017.
The project team will be inviting scientists, policy consultants and policy makers from regional, national and European levels to discuss current issues of socio-spatial polarisation and peripheralisation and the limitations and negative impacts of current regional, social and economic policies across Europe.
To enable a lively exchange across sectoral and disciplinary boundaries there will be a variety of formats ranging from keynote lectures, via open stage interviews or fish bowl discussions and photo/video presentation, to paper sessions and group discussions.
Finally, the conference will include an excursion to a ‘peripheral’ region in Central Germany on Wednesday 27 September and an official conference dinner on Thursday 28 September.
