Round Table
Urban Areas and Macroregions: New Spatial Development Challenges and a Search for Balance in Strategic Planning


Development of supraterritorial entities (urban areas and macroregions) has become an important part of regional policy and one of Russia’s spatial development priorities. Today’s urban agglomeration processes are spontaneous and unregulated, and the existing law enforcement practices are sparse and ambiguous.
Topics for discussion:
- the need for regulatory framework of urban areas and macroregions;
- a balance between the interests of government bodies at different levels; international experience and new horizons of Russian governance;
- selecting priority governance models; the ratio of regional and local government at the organizational structure of supraterritorial entities.
