Welcome to the Economic Geography Group

Economic Geography
© Hans-Martin Zademach

The Economic Geography working group addresses principles of regional development and socio-economic activities in spatial perspective. In our research, we are interested in processes shaping social and regional inequalities in and between various contexts in both the Global North and increasingly also the Global South, with a specific emphasis on international relations (e.g. knowledge networks, corporate value chains) in general and the exchange of financial means (e.g. private equity, remittances) in particular. In all ongoing initiatives, the concept of sustainable development / strong sustainability is a pivotal element.

Teaching

Jungen Menschen Kenntnisse und Fähigkeiten humangeographischen Arbeitens zu vermitteln ist ein Kernstück unseres Lehrstuhls. Wir bauen auf eine lange Tradition der Ausbildung von Humangeographinnen und -geographen. Generationen von Diplomstudierenden haben am Lehrstuhl einen Abschluss als Diplom-Kulturgeographen und Diplomgeographinnen mit Schwerpunkt „Freizeit, Tourismus und Umwelt“ erworben. Seit der Einführung der Bachelor- und Masterstudiengänge im Rahmen des Bologna-Prozesses begleiten wir Studierende auf Ihrem Weg, den akademischen Titel „BSc Geographie mit Schwerpunkt Freizeit, Tourismus und Umwelt“ oder „MSc Tourism and Regional Planning – Management and Geography“ zu erhalten.
