RELOCAL Policy Webinars

RELOCAL Online Policy Webinar 1 “Perceptions of Spatial Injustice”

Date: 23rd November 2020

Time: 13:00 – 15:00 (CET)

This is the first in a series of RELOCAL Policy Webinars focussing on one of the key topics addressed in the RELOCAL project, i.e. perceptions of spatial injustices in various European localities. Three out of 33 RELOCAL case studies will be presented to shed light on the question of how understanding perceptions of spatial injustices may provide a key for policies to solving them. The cases indeed will illustrate some potential policy responses revolving around aspects such asaccessibility, digitalization, migration and community building. The cases and wider topic will be commented upon by two EU-level representatives.
