Education at Department of Geography

People's actions and their consequences on the geography of contemporary society is of interest for geographers. Why is it that more people live in Malmö than in Arvidsjaur? How come Kista became the Swedish equivalent to Silicon Valley? What are the reasons for people's mobility and migration during the life course? If we know more about how people move, where they chose to live and what they prefer to do during leisure time, then we can improve planning. Geographers focus on contexts and their relations to wider social, economic and physical processes.
