Local and regional studies

Lokální a regionální studia

The department focuses on research into the connections between territorially specific factors — local and regional — and processes of social change, including the formation and functioning of socio-spatial configurations, institutional structures, civic participation and the formation of values, attitudes and political orientations. Research also encompasses the sociological aspects of local and regional politics. The department participates in international research on the European public space.
