This relationship is based on the social inequity and unfair distribution of political power. This polarization can be seen in many European countries that in recent years experienced tension between regions in terms of a polarization between dynamic and growing metropolitan areas and rural regions with shrinkage and decline and increasing inequalities between rich and poor neighbourhoods (K&uuml;hn 2014). </p> <p>Historically urban and rural areas were perceived with binary and contradictory logic (Painter 2007). Core-periphery development models were made during the 20th century to describe uneven economic relations between different regions. These economic models and theories were based on the Keynesianism and aimed to explain the market imbalances (Bla&#382;ek and Uhl&iacute;&#345; 2011). </p><figure><p><a href="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/u4/u41g4v99l5muuk36.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=1028" rel="nofollow" target="_blank"><img src="https://archinect.imgix.net/uploads/u4/u41g4v99l5muuk36.jpg?auto=compress%2Cformat&amp;w=514"></a></p></figure><p><br></p> <p>Crucial distinguishion was made by Friedmann (1973) who named these regions as a ...</p> https://archinect.com/blog/article/150021272/phenomena-in-peripheral-and-rural-areas-differences-between-rural-and-urban-regions Phenomena in peripheral and rural areas- Differences between rural and urban regions Mikkel Sølbeck 2017-08-05T13:45:49-04:00 >2018-01-30T06:16:04-05:00 <p><em>From the sociological perspective rural and urban creates two different lifestyles and sets of values. The rural and urban way of living can be defined.

Rural way of living was dominant and natural for majority of people. Due to industrialization and urbanization people started to move from small villages to big cities.
