Nordic Geographers Meeting – Geographies of Inequalities

October 18 - October 21

Understanding spatial differences lies at the heart of geographical research. Inherit to this is the analytical focus of spatial and social injustices – and the ways in which inequality take place at global and local levels of analysis. These have been important research questions regardless of scientific traditions and paradigms since the birth of modern geography.

The topic for the 7th Nordic Geographers Meeting is: Where are we now? What are the important challenges we have to deal with today? What kinds of spatial and social differences are the most urgent to try to understand? Do we have operational concepts for analyzing today’s inequalities or do we need conceptual improvements? Do we have the methodological tools or is there a need for new approaches?

Is our scientific mission to give guidance to politicians and political agents in order to reduce inequalities and imbalances, or is it to act as uncomfortable and inconvenient analyzers of contemporary anomalies?
