Research

The research in the Stockholm University Department of Human Geography concentrates on three research profiles:

This includes studies in Europe – particularly in Sweden – as well as in other parts of the world, with emphasis on Africa south of the Sahara. Some faculty and doctoral students have interests in more than one research profile. Part of the research is carried out with partners throughout the University and in cooperation with researchers in other organizations in Sweden and abroad.

The Department’s research is part of four leading research areas (lager, smaller, future) within the Faculty of Social Sciences, namely:

  • Demography – together with the Department of Sociology
  • The Gender Academy – includes a number of departments in the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Social Sciences
  • Historical Geography and Landscape Studies
  • Planning and Policy
