    OVERVIEW

    The course is dedicated to the study of the territory. In particular, political geography contextualizes the way in which human communities organize themselves and regulate their relations on the territory. Economic geography explains how the distribution of resources and population on earth affect socio-economic and environmental development.

    The course can be taken for 9 CFU in Scienze dell’Amministrazione e della Politica (SAP) or for 8 CFU in Scienze Internazionali e Diplomatiche (SID).

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course aims to provide basic knowledge both in political and economic components. The student will therefore be able to identify and understand the consequences of political action on territory, above all in terms of renovation in space organization. At the same time, the student will be able to analyse the new intersections of economic action in the context of globalization at different levels of the geographical scale and by type of economic stakeholders.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of the course, the student will be able to:

    • summarize the elements that constitute the bases respectively of the political action of human communities in relation to the shape and opportunities of the territories that host them;
    • analyze and explain the methods of organization and the causes of human settlement and migration according to the changing demographic balance that can certainly alter political relations within states and between different states;
    • understand the reasons that induce a new redistribution of religions and languages and in the world;
    • argue and describe (in written and oral form) how the action of man in the economic field and the exploitation of resources depend on the distribution and movements of man on earth.

    PREREQUISITES

    No.

    TEACHING METHODS

    The course consists of lectures, for a total of 54 hours ( 9 CFU) in SAP and 48 (CFU) in SID, aimed at presenting and studying the main notions of political and economic geography through the use of practical examples.

    The materials used during the lessons will be uploaded to AulaWeb together with other materials (reports, links to databases, etc.) aimed at defining the quantitative aspects of the phenomena studied.

    Occasionally, researchers or experts in the discipline (Italian and foreign) may also be invited to hold seminars to study specific aspects of the problems dealt with.

    Attending students will also have the opportunity to carry out case studies through group work. The group work is divided into two phases: preparation of a written paper, oral presentation accompanied by sli-des. Timely information will be provided in class and via AulaWeb.

    The students of the DEGREE COURSE in SCIENCES OF ADMINISTRATION AND POLITICS (SAP), IF UNABLE TO ATTEND, WILL BE ABLE TO FOLLOW THE LESSONS ON THE TEAMS CHANNEL: t0npeue, as the DEGREE COURSE in SAP has been included by the University in the "P.A.- Program. 110 e lode "which provides for the possibility of carrying out the teaching activity in e-learning mode (synchronous and / or asynchronous).

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    The program is divided into three parts:

    FIRST PART - Tools and models to interpret the demographic and migratory dynamics. The role of languages and religions to ensure socio-demographic balance.

    SECOND PART - The concept of state and nation and the importance of land and maritime borders to legitimize the very existence of the state. Role and position of capital cities.

    THIRD ART - Evolution of production sectors, transport and communication networks.
