2 AG Creative Processes in Spatial Research and Planning Jens S. Dangschat Content Three main topics 1.Trans-disciplinary work: easy to claim, but not easy to satisfy – the challenge of new roles 2.What really are the driving forces of social des- integration? – the needed open mindedness Shift from the fordist to the postfordist triangle Reflections on residential segregation 3.Cities as a whole – the challenge for the European City (research)

3 AG Creative Processes in Spatial Research and Planning Jens S. Dangschat Trans-Disciplinary Work 1.Dichotomy practise vs. theory is outdated as both sides have the same academic education (= same starting point of knowledge) new roles for both in applied research and scientific based practise challenge for the transfer of knowledge challenge of organising the secure finding within knowledge processes 2.New role for the academic consultancy: based on excellent research proper reduction of complexity (drqgma) 3.New role for administrations: not to reduce the interest on variables that can easily impacted by the administration / politics (= steering variabels) to better understand the interrelations and driving forces (awareness of impact power)

4 AG Creative Processes in Spatial Research and Planning Jens S. Dangschat Driving Forces of Social Des-Integration 1.(Global) labour market in its local/regional regulation 2.Social processes of economic polarisation, cultural hetero- genisation and demographic change 3.Welfare state conditions / discrimination of groups 4.Regional Policies of EU – strengthening the strength 5.Recent competitive economic growth policies (like intensi- fied concentrations in the metroplises centres) are positively correlated to economic growth (GNP), but negatively correlated to social cohesion and negatively correlated to environment protection goals (ESPON 111, pp ) Thus: Recent competitive growth policies (supported by the EU) are contradicting the Lisbon goals and are not sustainable

6 AG Creative Processes in Spatial Research and Planning Jens S. Dangschat Reflections on Residential Segregation 1.Main thesis: Residentail segregation is one of the main hindrance for social cohesion! 2.This only holds for discriminatory housing and environ- mental conditions and/or dangerous neighbourhoods ( ghettoistaion) – but these are the scarce exceptions in EU countries 3.Residential segregation (as an overall figure) has no practical meaning interest for problematic concentrat- ions 4.Structural figures like share of uneployed or housholds with migrational background have more or less no impact on social inclusion – but social processes to bridge social cleavages

7 AG Creative Processes in Spatial Research and Planning Jens S. Dangschat Cities As A Whole 1.Competition between cities/regions is about proper regulation mayor challenge to reflect the interplay of different policies 2.Within cities there are existing different forms of govern- ment/governance cultures between policy fields and administrative branches at the same time 3.Is there a benchmark of successful integration policies at the urban/regional level? 4.How these results can be translated into diversity management policies to safeguard equal opportunities? 5.What about transfers of rich to poor parts (neighbour- hoods, branches, social groups) within cities?
