Adapting to everyday life in the post-socialist era - aspects of the transformation of living conditions in East Germany

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The differences in prosperity between city and rural regions, which were already manifest in the GDR, have become more pronounced in the course of the transformation process. The qualitative improvements in quality of life often took place at the expense of accessibility, and therefore disadvantaged the less mobile population groups. The thinning out of the infrastructural network has primarily affected the more sparsely populated regions so far, as well as the services provided for young people and children, who occupied a privileged status in the GDR. An increase in motorised mobility, improvements in transport infrastructure, but also changes in the settlement and supply structure are factors which have decisively changed the space-time behaviour and experience during the last years in eastern Germany. - (HPB)
