M.Sc. Modul 3: Vertiefungsschwerpunkt 1: Transformation of Post-Industrial Regions

Transforming Waterfront- Perspectives for -Post Industrial Port Cities? Strategies – Actors – Governance
Betreuung: Dipl-Geogr. Dennis Hardt (ROP)

Since the end of the 20th century urban areas with heavy industries faced radical change. The economic structure shifted mainly towards service sector economy within a very short timeframe and together with globalization it had high impacts on the demographic and socio-economic structure of these regions. Traditional harbor cities are especially hit by negative impacts of structural change. It is not only that heavy industriesoften have a high proportion of economic output in those regions, itis also entangled with the logistic sector. The old industries abandoned former production facilities and left vast brownfield areas as well as inner city waste lands. Furthermore the “containerization” in international shipping causes shipping harbours and the connected, still working industries like shipyards to move from locations nearby inner cities further towards the ocean shores.
