dc.description.abstractThe previous chapter introduced the range of issues associated with the peri-urban, the subject of this book. The peri-urban as a specific morphological type was defined and the different dimensions of its dynamics were explored. This periurban zone is intimately associated with the transition from a dense urban structure to that of a rural character and since it also involves movements into, out of and across it from both these extremes, it is difficult to consider it properly without understanding the broader regional context and dynamics across the urban–rural gradient. Therefore, this chapter will focus on the broader context of urban–rural relationships. Based on recent scientific debates concerning the concept of functional regions and urban–rural relationships, both current and previous definitions and their political implementations are introduced before presenting a new typology to represent Rural–urban Regions (RUR) spatially. Covering the territory of European Union (EU), this typology classifies regions into different types, considering city size, degree of regionalmono- and poly-centricity, as well as their urban, peri-urban or rural predominance. The development of the typology includes a further delineation of regions into urban, peri-urban and rural sub-regions, all based on land use patterns and population distribution and density. The typology was subsequently used throughout the PLUREL project and each of the case studies presented in Part Two refers to one of these types, although not all are represented there, since the case studies were unavoidably selected before the typology was developed.en
