Adam Monrad-Roberts

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

The aftermath of the financial crisis have left many peripheral regions in a negative growth spiral: Large manufacturing firms have moved their factories abroad, leaving relatively unskilled workers without a job, graduates leave the region in search of job opportunities. The main learning objective of this project has been to gain an understanding of how recent developments in the global economy have impacted upon regional development within a country. Patterns of spatial inequality are investigated on different levels, including global, national and regional levels. Focus is on Denmark and its competitive position in a global economy, marked by increased trade and division of labor, and specifically the impact on Region Zealand.
