Contents of the course

 

This part of the course develops the economic tools that exist to analysis urban and territorial systems. In the course, the following questions are tackled: which are the determinants of location choices of firms and individuals? Which are the determinants of economic growth in different types of territories? Which tools exist for the economic analysis of the territory?

 

The aim is to present the main economic logics that explain the way in which economic activities are organized in space. To achieve such an aim, the course presents the main location theories and regional growth and local development theories that have been developed since the 1950s.
