Brief content description

In this course, the territory is seen not only as a physical space delimited by the administrative boundaries or by geomorphological characteristics, but also as a place dense of relationships that change the boundaries over time. We introduce analytical tools that allow to interpret the structure of relationships between people (who live and work in that area), companies (who use the land for manufacturing, commercial or service activities) and institutions active in the territory. Interrelations between territories will provide a key to analyse both the regional and the EU strategic programmes. Teaching is characterized by focusing on relevant socio-economic issues, looking for data from different sources, the application of several tools of analysis and the critical interpretation of the results.
