Leibniz-Institute for Regional Geography

The Leibniz-Institut für Länderkunde (IfL – Leipzig / Germany) is the only non-university research institute for geography in Germany. It examines regional restructuring processes, their economic and social impacts, and regional policy responses in an integrated spatial perspective focussing on Central and Eastern Europe. One research focus is the production of space in the context of polarisation and peripheralisation (currently 11 transnational projects).
