Területi és társadalmi változások a magyarországi iparvárosokban 1990-2018 között
In my study I intend to give a detailed analysis of social transformations of the past 27 years in Hungarian industrial towns (former 'socialist' towns). The array of urban functions and activities has undergone a significant modification in the so-called traditional industrial towns (11), which resulted not merely in spatial and economic structural changes but furthermore in notable social ones as well. In the case of several towns social realignments (Tatabánya, Várpalota, Oroszlány),
... on loss (Dunaújváros, Salgótarján), as well as the emergence of new social groups in consequence of new activities undertaken (Százhalombatta, Ajka, Várpalota) occurred. Simultaneously local community initiatives commenced with the goal of finding viable roles for these towns and their residents; for some groups within the towns, while for others temporarily or permanently through relocation to other settlements. Thus the current survey primarily concerns itself with those social issues which have initiated and brought novel changes and developments in the towns under consideration in their local economies and at various levels of their communities.
