AbstractAbstract This project originates in the fascination of an on going progress of the Danish capital, Copenhagen, and the interrelationship with the peripheral Denmark. In the recent years the development has been characterised by an entrepreneurial approach in the search for economic growth. There is an increased focus on the wish to centralize the economic growth towards the capital, which can be identified through economic discourses. The project examines the tensions that occur between Region Sjælland and Region Hovedstaden. This will be processed through empirical knowledge consisting of statistics from Væksthus Sjælland, an interview with Øystein Leonardsen, a content analysis of an OECD review. The project will use theory of David Harvey and Christian Wichmann Matthiessen, which will be processed and discussed in a combination of empirical research. The focus throughout the project is to clarify the impact the regions have on each other concentrated on the socioeconomic disequilibrium. The project outlines the hypothesis regarding that the centralization towards Copenhagen creates poor social and economic conditions for some parts of the population. The project has worked interdisciplinary with two scientific theoretical perspectives; positivism and social constructivism, which give a wider angle to the thesis.
