Metropolitan Research Institute prepared the study for the “Western Subregion” of Central and Eastern European transition countries: the Baltic states (Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania) the Visegrad Four countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, and Slovakia), and Slovenia. The detailed analysis of the cities in this region covered overviews on the central topics of Population and Urbanization; The Economic Role of Cities; Social and Housing Issues; Urban Environmental Challenges; Urban Governance Systems; and Emerging Issues.
Nearly the entire staff of MRI researchers participated in the production of the analysis; moreover, MRI actively participated in the preparation of the project’s Summary Report.
