While there are many cities and regions across the Western world that have experienced population growth over the past decennia, there are also cities and regions that are going through a transition from population growth to decline. This process of demographic and economic decline can contribute to the decline in the level of liveability in these regions. Josje Hoekveld investigates how demographic and economic developments have influenced each other within a region experiencing urban decline. In addition, she also takes a look at the so-called intra-regional differentiation in population development in two similar regions: Saarland in Germany and Southern Limburg in the Netherlands.
