(24 April 2019) – Empirical work carried through the 33 RELOCAL case studies reveals some early findings in the context of ‘spatial justice’.
The Horizon 2020 research project RELOCAL departs from the premise that “place” can precondition the local action chances in promoting fairness and well-being.
In 2017, the RELOCAL researchers selected 33 locality-based/targeted case studies from all over Europe that represent different welfare regimes, rural and urban areas, disadvantaged and better-off localities and various cultural and historical contexts.
Fieldwork took place in 2018 and the first draft case study reports are becoming available in 2019. A quick review of 8 draft case studies reveals some early findings that may already lead to preliminary conclusions.
