Façonner le changement - Economie régionale et démographie de la Ruhr

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The article addresses the possibilities to shape demographic change and its impact on regional development. The main argument is that on a regional level, both demographic change itself and its social and economic impacts, can be influenced even in the short term. Demographic change itself may be influenced by migration, more precisely by attracting families with children and improving integration of immigrants. Its social and economic impacts may be influenced by using ageing as a stimulus for innovation and business development. Conditions in the Ruhr area for these strategies are generally quite favourable. - (IfL)
