About the course
The course provides an orientation on research issues, concepts and theories in modern economic geography, such as how new technologies affect the importance of distance and interaction at local and global levels, and the relationships between these levels. The course addresses issues related to production, consumption, and intermediate processes, as well as issues of uneven economic development in relation to e.g. social and economic conditions in labour markets.
The course is intended for human geography students and other students in social science with an interest in businesses, technology development, globalisation, economic integration, and regional (uneven) economic development.
