The Quality of Life of Suburbanities: A Case Study of the Gdańsk Agglomeration

The Quality of Life of Suburbanities: A Case Study of the Gdańsk Agglomeration

The article explains the meaning of the concept of ‘quality of life’, placing emphasis on its subjective dimension. As the concept is more and more discussed in the literature, the author intends to examine the satisfaction within public spaces for which local government is responsible. According to research made in Canada it is worth measuring not only satisfaction as such but also the importance of its constituent dynamics. Therefore, a survey made in the suburbs of the Gdańsk agglomeration asked respondents about their satisfaction with public transport, roads, environment, etc., including questions about the relative importance of such issues. The combination of satisfaction and importance provide the overall quality of life. At the end of the paper the author considers if there is a chance to improve the quality of life through a brief analysis of local governments expenditure.

Suburbanisation and Suburbanisms – Making Sense of Continental European Developments

1 Introduction While current discourses in urban research and practice tend to focus on processes of reurbanisation and the gentrification of inner-city areas, suburban areas are still a vital part of many city regions, at least in a majority of the developed countries. “The world is increasingly urban, and the urban world is increasingly suburban” ( Klausen/Røe 2012 : 1). As studies on suburbia and suburbanisation often emphasise North American or Anglo-Saxon debates and developments, we prefer to take a distinct continental European perspective on this

Inner-City Suburbanization – no Contradiction in Terms. Middle-Class Family Enclaves are Spreading in the Cities

1 Introduction In most Western industrialized countries, the development trajectories of urban agglomerations and their interpretations are the subject of intensive and controversial discussion. Although reurbanization is certainly the trend of the time, suburban areas continue to attract residents, jobs, and formerly ‘urban’ functions in many metropolitan regions. It is not only the contradictory simultaneity of these processes that is puzzling, but also the fact that the clear distinctions between what we used to consider ‘urban’ and ‘suburban’ are
