Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

This course deals with the theory and practice of location behaviour and decision-making, formation of spatial structures, development of these structures over time as well as particular policies dealing with individual territories. These categories are assessed not only from economic but also social and environmental perspectives. Location of economic entities form the basis for the generation of territorial structures. Spatial structures of various kinds and scales are monitored from both static and dynamic perspectives. Particular approaches towards local and regional development can be usually satisfactorily ranked under four fundamental territorial-developmental conceptions. These include neoclassic, keynesian, socialist and modern eclectic approaches. These conceptions also determine the basic attributes of policies dealing with territorial development.
