Doctoral Thesis

Working title:
Climate Resilience in Urban Regeneration Areas—the Case of Seoul

Supervisor:
Prof. Dr. Dr. h. c. Bernhard Müller, TU Dresden, Faculty of Environmental Sciences

Abstract:
Although urban regeneration offers great potential to increase climate resilience, practice in Korean cities shows that these opportunities are not taken up. Using the case of Seoul, this dissertation is oriented to identify institutional impediments increasing climate resilience through document analysis and semi-structured interviews with main stakeholders in urban regeneration areas. It will provide empirical evidence on the role of governance and institutions to increase urban climate resilience.

Keywords: urban climate resilience, urban regeneration
