Course Content (Syllabus)
The course covers a wide range of theoretical approaches to regional and urban development by analyzing both the basic concepts of space and site-selection factors, as well as the role of geography in development. The course is divided into three basic modules. The first includes the main theoretical discussions, with particular emphasis on the most recent ones; the second concerns regional / urban / local development policies, while the third deals with a series of specific issues of particular importance for the understanding of the spatial dimensions of the modern world. At the same time, each of the lectures is based on three categories of material: a) Material from the basic textbooks b) Extensive bibliography (mainly international) c) Case studies
regional development, urban development, economic geography, development planning
