Human Geography, Planning and International Development

The discipline studies the political, economic and cultural entanglement of different parts of the world and the local impact of globalisation. The discipline also has a substantive focus on the distribution of natural resources (land, water, energy sources, food, raw materials for industrial production), environmental issues, climate change, conflicts that are related to this and how political and economic actors deal with this.

Research

Research is organized in four research groups, which are part of the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research:

  • Urban Geographies
  • Urban Planning
  • Governance and Inclusive Development
  • Political and Economic Geographies

Education

The University of Amsterdam offers various bachelors and masters in Geography, Planning and International Development Studies. The UvA also organizes a number of open and summer programmes in this discipline.
