“ Shrinking city ” - term to be verified ?

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



City crisis has been a subject of urban debates in both Anglo-Saxon and German space. “ Shrinking city ” (schrumpfende Stadt) term was developed in Germany and means a persistent urban crisis which is characterized by depopulation and worsening economic conditions. Nowadays, often, the only determinant for calling a city as shrinking is a population decrease. Such understanding might be misleading. In the Author’s view age structure of population is at least as important for the city economic performance and physical development as its quantitative change. - (BJ)
