Survey on the implications of Covid-19 for spatial planning and territorial governance in South-East Europe

Published at: 24 August 2020

We kindly invite planning professionals, researchers, academics and experts whose work is significantly related to territorial governance/development and city making in South-East Europe, to participate in a survey about the implications of COVID-19 for spatial planning, territorial governance and development. 

The year 2020 will be long remembered for the COVID-19 pandemic. No country has been preserved from its impact, no sector or human activity can be considered untouchable from its implications - urban/spatial planning and territorial development included.

The outcome of this research will be published in the Annual Review on Territorial Governance in the Western Balkan Region, an open-access publication of the Western Balkan Network on Territorial Governance, which is an informal network of research centres, NGOs, institutions and experts/academics dealing with territorial governance and spatial planning.

Furthermore, the findings of the research can be used by interested organisations in their bottom-up efforts of influencing policy-making on territorial governance and spatial planning in the respective countries and at EU level.

If you work and/or live in South East Europe, we look forward to receiving your opinion on how the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted your professional activity, the related institutional reaction in your country, and territorial evidences and development, by responding to the questionnaire in the following link:

Area of Research: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Romania, Serbia, Slovenia.

Thank you in advance for your kind support and cooperation,
