Ph.D. School in Economic Geography - Utrecht University

The course aims to provide an introduction to contemporary research perspectives and approaches in economic geography. The core questions of this discipline – related to the role of place and space in processes of economic development – have in recent years attracted interest not just from geographers but also from economists and other social scientists. This course will debate recent theoretical developments (with special attention to evolutionary and institutional economic geography) and will discuss recent advancements in methodology and empirical analysis in economic geography. The course will take place in two stages: from Sept. 10 to Sept. 14 and then from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2.
