Our research focuses on spatial dimensions of social reality. With this focus, we are following two guiding questions:

- In which structures and practices are implemented economic, social and political developments in space and time?

- How to produce spatial terms and local conditions, how to adopt and to perceive both?

We are examining these questions the following three sectors:

Economy and resources

Culture and Identities

Communication and knowledge

We are increasing our focus “From Local to Global” on different scales and different research areas. Urban Research is our particular main emphasis.
