Regional periphery : what does it mean ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Periphery exists as a consequence of regional heterogeneity. It occurs at each regional level. In Czech conditions, it is the distance from Prague and the distance from the Bavarian border as well as differences between the urban northern part and the rural southern part of the country that are important for the delimitation of periphery. Border locations are often considered peripheral. There is also an inner periphery which is mainly conditioned by the relief. At a microregional level, periphery is indicated within the town-hinterland relation. Regional periphery does not mean only underdevelopment and the lack of opportunities, but usually also tranquillity, low environment pollution, etc. and may be considered attractive by certain social groups. - (BJ)
