Economic Geography and Sustainable Development

Prof. Dr. Annika Mattissek

How do social norms and priorities emerge when dealing with nature and the environment? How do they change in discursive negotiation processes? How do we construct certain views about what is "right" and "good" in the context of politics and planning and how do these views change over time? How do new technologies change human-nature interactions? The basic understanding of our work is that human perspectives and practices are socially constructed. Empirical focal points of our current research are, for example, a political-geographic analysis of migration, conflicts in the exploitation of natural resources, and political-geographic perspectives on the German military .
