Summary

Cílem předmětu je poskytnutí základních znalostí o geografickém pozadí světa a zejména prohloubení okruhu znalostí o socioekonomické váze evropského kontinentu, jeho jednotlivých států a vybraných regionů. Na politické mapě Evropy došlo za posledních deset let k výrazným proměnám, které dotvářejí dramatické události 20. století na tomto kontinentu. Vliv Evropy na okolní svět především v podmínkách globalizačních a integračních tendencí zůstává v mnoha směrech závažný. Stejně tak mimořádnou roli sehrávají aktivity v oblasti budování bezpečnostní architektury Evropy.
