Person in charge
Helka Kalliomäki

Learning outcomes

The objective is to give students basic understanding about key planning issues and challenges in the Baltic Sea Region.


Planning topics and challenges in the BSR and its diverse regions and countries are discussed in relation to wider European Union spatial policy and planning dimension, thus giving students basic information about planning at the EU scale. Also recent developments in planning theory are critically discussed in the context of concrete planning challenges in the BSR. Furthermore, the EU’s macro-regional strategy for the BSR, as well as other key spatial visions, is discussed together with cross-border cooperation and future governance challenges.
