PhD Thesis

This PhD thesis focuses on the experiences of cities regarding the reduction of social inequalities in environmental and health issues. In this context, the aim is to analyse the relevance of autonomously created spaces of participation and their possibilities to influence urban development and the public health area to reduce social, environmental and health inequalities. The case studies should be examined to be found in countries of the Global South as well. In a further step, the results of these case studies should be reflected regarding the German urban planning system in order to gain new insights for the future.
