Disappointment or unexpected gain? A survey-based study of the motives and outcomes of inter-municipal cooperation in Poland

significant forms of IMC in Poland. We base our analyses on the surveys of Polish IMUs and IMComs conducted in 2015 and 2017, respectively. Perceived motives and outcomes of inter-municipal cooperation The multilateral character of cooperation implies that each of the actors involved may be guided by different motives. Some authors suggest that the homogeneity of partners is an important factor enabling/disabling common action. According to Feiock, Steinacker & Park (2009) , the diversity of partners’ economic situations may have a negative impact on the likelihood

The assessment of the suburbanisation degree of Warsaw Functional Area using changes of the land development structure

relevant subject literature, the diversity of urbanisation of suburb areas is widely described, considering demographic, economic, socio-cultural, natural landscape and spatial factors ( Kutkowska et al. 2010 ; Małek 2011 ; Zegar et al. 2016 ; Mikołajczyk & Raszka 2016 ; Harasimowicz 2018 ). The set of variables used in the study of the urbanisation level and dynamics is extensive, considering: – the demographic aspect – these include a natural increase, the migration attractiveness ratio, the percentage of the population of working age, the fertility rate of
