Summary

This course focuses upon the theory and practice of approaches towards location decision-making. Spatial structures, their formation and development will be widely discussed as well. While these categories are assessed primarily from the economic perspective, the course deals also with their social and environmental connotations. Apart from the location, spatial arrangement, settlement systems and conceptions of local and regional development will be debated thoroughly.
