WG: Economic and Social Geography


Why do some regions grow economically, while others stagnate or even shrink? How do companies organize their economic activities and how this is reflected in space? How do successful companies affect an entire region? What options are available to guide the economic development of these processes and at what guidelines they should they follow?

We deal with these and related questions, analyzing the interaction between the spatial organization of economic activities and regional development processes. We also consider dynamic frameworks such as globalization, structural change, and the increasing importance of the knowledge economy.

Our publication "Contributions to Economic Geography and Regional Development" can be downloaded for free at: www.regionalentwicklung.uni-bremen.de.
