Aims, contents and method of the course

Political geography has been traditionally dealing with the interdependencies of space, society and politics. In post-modern times, however, the focus of political geography has shifted from the analysis of the state(s) as prime actor(s) to multi-level analyses of conflicts (local-regional-national-global) within a time-space-framework. Within this framework typical conflicts
In East, Southeast, Central and West Asia will be analyzed.
