Edited by Gudrun Köchendorfer-Lucius, Boris Pleskovic
The Berlin Workshop Series 2009 presents selected papers from
meetings held from September 30 – October 2, 2007, at the tenth
annual forum co-hosted by InWEnt and the World Bank in preparation for
the Bank’s World Development Report. At the 2007 meetings, key
researchers and policy makers from Europe, the United States, and
developing countries met to identify and brainstorm on spatial
disparities and development policy, which are later examined in depth
in the World Development Report 2009.
This volume presents papers from the Berlin Workshop sessions on
issues relating to understanding spatial trends: perspectives and
models; new economic geography and the dynamics of technological
change: implications for developing countries; perspectives on
rural-urban transformation: leading, lagging and interlinking places;
spatial disparity and labor mobility; country realities and policy
options; learning from Europe’s efforts at integration and
convergence; and spatial policy for growth and equity.
