In our latest publication, we continue the multifaceted exploration of Hungary’s economic and social history, with a particular focus on the Southern Transdanubian region. What began as a local initiative three years ago has now attracted the  participation of scholars from the United States and Germany. Authors are  increasingly coming from national research institutions and archives, representing various stages of their research careers, including PhD students and professors as well.
Not only has the number of authors increased, but so too has the diversity of topics. For the first time, we had the opportunity to organize the studies into thematic blocks, providing insight into the increasingly active and extensive scholarly dialogue that exists among researchers and their research endeavors.

Abstract

The purpose of the study. In my current research I want to describe the economic history and local economic development aspects of small towns in a coherent framework. The first of these elements is the impact of the urban form on the image of towns. All the characteristics that define a settlement will affect it throughout its development.

Applied methods. In addition to the analysis of the literature and regulatory background in Hungary, the development strategies, urban image manuals, and marketing strategies of small towns are presented.

Outcomes. One of the elements of culture-based small-town development is the built or natural cultural heritage found in towns; these factors have played an important and prominent role in the life of the settlements that have become towns and cities. Their role in urban development can also help to define the vision of the future of a settlement.

Keywords: settlement image, regulation, planning policy, urban development
