Our ever-changing world has engendered new societal challenges and opportunities. Population and socio-economic dynamics in changing spatially complex environments represents a key issue to debate nowadays by generating interest on different areas from global to local perspective. In the new view of an integrative global environment the demographic element with its characteristic elements (demographic structures and rates, labor force, migrations, population evolution and modeling, etc.) and human settlements (from hamlets and villages to metropolitan areas) appear as a core element envisaged as both, cause and effect of whole new geographical phenomena.
– Demographic divide, migration and health
– Tourism, competitive identity, places and destination development
– Cities, urbanization, planning: Concentration is the rule; Convergence is the objective; Integration is the answer.
– Geopolitics, European policies and regional development.
