Article
This paper empirically examines the applicability of the planetary urbanization concept to understand the complexities associated with the rural-to-urban transformation process unfolding in India. It contributes to the rural-urban debate by investigating the role of non-urban spaces – here census towns – in accelerating India’s process of urbanizat...
Article
The policy of economic liberalization pursued by the Indian government since the 1990s in response to an economic slowdown has led to the creative destruction of institutional space and the built environment. India launched the Smart Cities Mission and the Delhi-Mumbai Industrial Corridor to enhance infrastructure delivery and employment opportunit...
Article
While neoliberalisation has long drawn scholarly attention, there have been few attempts to quantify the course of restructuring under neoliberal urbanisation. This paper aims to describe and quantify the restructuring process in India for the period 1991-2011. Theoretically embedded in the notion of "creative destruction", the paper adopts a multi...

Renewable energy minigrids hold significant prospects for Africa’s energy sector and its economic development in general. The government of Ghana has established pilot renewable minigrids in five off-grid communities as a testing ground for the electrification of over 600 existing rural communities that cannot be electrified via the national grid....
Article
Full-text available
Welfare is traditionally understood through social security decommodifying labor markets or social investment policies. In the domain of housing, however, welfare for homeowners is largely hidden in the tax codes' fiscal exemptions. Based on a content analysis of legislation, this paper introduces a novel yearly database of 37 countries between 191...

Die Studie befasst sich mit den praktischen Aspekten der ⁠Anpassung an den Klimawandel⁠ und den gleichzeitigen demografischen und wirtschaftsstrukturellen Veränderungsprozessen in kleineren und/ oder finanzschwachen Kommunen. Im Fokus stehen die Handlungsansätze, die in erster Linie die kommunalen Akteure aus Politik, Verwaltung und Beratung bei de...
Article
In recent years, scholars of urban studies have advocated strategic spatial planning as a way to better integrate infrastructure provision with spatial development in the Global South, especially given escalation in large-scale development projects under neoliberalism. This paper outlines a conceptual framework that applies a multi-method approach...
Article
The urbanisation process in the Global South is characterised by the blurring of the boundaries between urban and rural areas and the lack of institutional capacity, which have made the process highly unsustainable. In India, an example of such development is the rapid growth of "census towns". These settlements are not acknowledged as urban by the...
Article
This paper focuses on the question of the effectiveness of subsidies to private and public investment, which are a key component of European regional policy. Given mixed findings from empirical studies, it is worth studying this issue in a simulation model, where the results can be traced back to policy shocks and model assumptions. To this end, th...
Chapter
The contemporary process of urbanization prevalent in the countries of the Global South, especially in Africa and Asia, is characterized by an unprecedented rise in urban populations, exceeding the capacity of local authorities to provide essential services. In particular, local authorities lack the funding required to build adequate infrastructure...
Article
We investigate how lump-sum equalization transfers affect expenditures and taxes in the municipalities of the largest German state North Rhine-Westphalia. In general, those general-purpose transfers cannot be treated as exogenous variables. Thus, for the identification of causal effects, two exoge-nous adjustments in the transfer allocation formula...
Article
Full-text available
The current discourse on urbanization calls for new approaches to capture the peculiarities of growth in the global South. This paper takes the National Capital Territory of Delhi as a case study and adopts a mix of methods (field survey, ordinary least squares regression and geographically weighted regression) to highlight the emerging gradient of...
Article
This paper uses concepts and measures from the central place theory to describe and analyze the settlement hierarchy in India. Using statistical analysis, a mismatch between the population-based hierarchy and the functional hierarchy is identified. Large cities lack adequate provision of urban amenities compared to small urban centers, which are re...
Article
India's increased pace of urbanisation is evident, but the question remains as to whether India can harness its developmental potential by providing social infrastructure to meet its projected growth. This paper investigates the urbanisation trajectory with respect to the provision of social infrastructure in the Capital Region of India. First, it...
Article
Considerable progress has been made in theoretically understanding the process of sprawl and devising corresponding growth management strategies in the global North. However, urban growth as sprawl remains a serious challenge in the global South, cutting across various geographic and municipal boundaries. The undesirable consequences are excessive...

Article
In the countries of the Global South such as India, rapid urbanization and the increase in individual motorization may lead to a predominance of unsustainable commuting patterns. However, urbanization also has important positive effects, including the empowerment of women. This paper examines newly released, spatially disaggregated data on home-to-...
Article
This paper aims to quantify the municipal tax-revenue effects of increases in built-up areas. The assumed existence of these effects is one of the key reasons for ongoing land consumption on the part of the municipalities. Some previous case studies have however suggested that these effects may not be large enough, especially in rural municipalitie...
Article
Contemporary urbanization, as experienced in India, is accompanied by increasing motorization and commuting lengths. A spatially unequal distribution of employment opportunities leads to important differences between urban and rural areas. Making use of newly released data at the district level on home-to-work commuting, this article examines the d...

Article
Spatial-development policies in India have aimed to achieve balanced regional development. However, these attempts have had limited success, as development is still concentrated in certain large urban areas. For that reason, sustainably accommodating the country’s projected population increase remains a challenge. Taking the Delhi National Capital...

This paper assesses the economic justification for the selection of priority projects defined under the auspices of the Trans-European transport network. Three different transport models are used to analyse the costs and benefits associated with the current list of 30 priority projects. Most of these projects fail the cost-benefit test and few of t...
Article
In this paper we make use of a unique dataset collected in the central train station of Kiel, Germany. A group ticket is used by individual proposers who search for co-travelers to share the ride with shortly before the train departure. The bargaining behavior resembles the Ultimatum game to the extent that proposers request a fixed price for a sha...
Article
This paper sets up a spatial dynamic CGE framework by combining the optimal growth model of saving and investment under adjustment costs and the spatial CGE model with Dixit–Stiglitz structure in the modern sector. Because of increasing product diversity on the dynamic equilibrium path, the model belongs to the category of semi-endogenous growth mo...
Article
In this paper we suggest a methodology to predict commodity specific transportation flows that brings together data in value and in quantity terms in a consistent way. The approach is based on the modern gravity formulation. There are three driving forces of the transport flows dynamics: economic growth, the ongoing globalization (reduction of trad...
Article
Policy decisions on transport infrastructure investments often require knowledge of welfare effects generated from using these infrastructures on a detailed regional level. This is in particular true for the EU initiative promoting the development of the trans-European transport (TEN-T) networks. As projects within this initiative affect regions in...
Chapter
The spatial effects of the European infrastructure policy, especially in relation with the cohesion objective, constitute a research question of particular interest for the policymakers, as can, for instance, be inferred from the significant number of large-scale research projects that incorporate this issue. These projects have a general focus on...

Please visit the official website: https://jahrestagung.ioer.info/en/ The development of liveable neighbourhoods, cities and regions is a key objective of spatial development. However, what does "livable" mean in the Anthropocene era? Human settlement patterns and economic practices have fundamentally altered natural basis of life such as regional climate, ecosystem services, biodiversity, and resource availability. Settlement and open spaces are significantly threatened by natural hazards. How might futures that we consider "livable" look under these conditions? What transformative capacities are needed to realise them? And what role does digitalisation play here? We want to address these pressing questions at the IOER Annual Conference 2022. You can expect selected contributions from international and national guests as well as from all IOER research areas. In addition, the Dresden Leibniz Graduate School (DLGS) is organising its international Summer School for PhD students on the same overarching topic the day before the conference (21 September). You are cordially invited to actively contribute your own work and ideas to the discussion during the conference (in English or German) as well as the Summer School (in English). A detailed call for sessions and contributions in different formats (e.g. article with presentation, short lecture or dialogue forum) will follow soon. We look forward to welcome you and to a stimulating discussion with you.
Project
The joint project KlimaKonform pursues the goal of developing an integrative and action-oriented approach for the identification and evaluation of capacities for adaptation to climate change for low mountain regions together with districts and selected exemplary communities. The following targets will put the project goal into practice: - The needs of actors from politics, administration, economy and society on the municipal and intermunicipal level with regard to knowledge on climate adaptation are determined. - A methodology for the integrative and address-differentiated assessment of the consequences of climate change, for the determination of local adaptation capacities and for the derivation of address-differentiated adaptation measures for low mountain regions in co-design will be developed. - A multidisciplinary and cross-regional approach to assessing the risks and opportunities of climate change as well as adaptation capacities and measures will be conceived and implemented in an (inter-)communally directly usable common platform, on which the necessary technical data, models and information are also integrated. The characteristics of the model region - three administrative districts in the catchment area of the White Elster - are typical for large parts of Germany. The cross-level and recipient-specific approach, the methods and tools that can be adapted to other conditions and, in general, the findings, products and experiences from the project will therefore be easily transferable to other low mountain regions in Germany.
Project
Urbanisation is a phenomena currently associated with the global South especially with countries like China and India. These regions are characterised by heavy spatial disparities, where growth is concentrated in certain large urban centres and around their vicinity. These centres are already resource crunched and accommodating the projected future growth sustainably will require adequate provision of urban amenities, which remains a challenge for governance. The project aimed to identify resource efficient settlement structure to achieve sustainable balanced regional growth in such rapidly growing urban regions in India.
