Scenario methods will used to present key drivers for spatial inequalities and spatial injustice across Europe. Selected groups of people (local and regional stakeholders, experts involved in local and regional development strategies and planning, journalists involved in spatial justice) will participate in scenario development in order to determine the impact and probability of occurrence of a certain factor in an upward, downward and stabilisation trend. The results allow identifying and assessing the strength of the impact under specific circumstances and the probability of different trajectories.
The derived policy considerations and messages will, on the knowledge gained from the in-depth case studies, pay due attention to the diversity of regional/local environments, but will provide clear messages on how to deliver better policies promoting territorial cohesion and spatial justice, including socio-economic well-being clear, in times of decreasing budgets and austerity.
Conclusive scenarios will be posted on this site.
