Economic Geography

Economic Geography is about understanding the varied places and spaces that are formed and given shape when economic activities are performed and circulate. Theoretically, the Economic Geography research unit draws on approaches that offer alternatives to orthodox mainstream economics and traditional economic geography. Our work focuses on the geographies of global production and consumption, on labor markets and migration, and on the gendered and gendering nature of the spatial economy. We study these phenomena both in the global north and the global south.
