2006 (English)In: EUROPA XXI: Cores and peripheral regions in Central and Eastern Europe, Warsaw: Polish Academy of Sciences, Stanisław Leszczyci Institute of Geography and Spatial Organization , 2006Chapter in book (Refereed)
In this study we explore these core-periphery patterns in the Baltic Sea Region (BSR) and discuss the potentials and challenges of the BSR for achieving the goal of territorial cohesion and by means of the policy instruments of polycentric urban development and accessibility. The focus of the study is on the connecting potentials of transport accessibility and transnational cooperation. We build upon the visions and strategies for the BSR produced by VASAB 2010+ and other Interreg projects and take the ESPON (European Spatial Planning Observation Network) programme methodology as a point of departure.
