The group collaborates with other working groups at the Institute of Geography and Regional Science, especially within the field of Geographical Education, “Integrative Geography,” and Human-Environment Research. We are embedded within the inter- and trans-disciplinary activities of URBI-Faculty , as well as in cooperation with university-wide projects, notably the Southest European Studies, mining-research und Geographical Education.


The Human Geography II working group contributes to the University Core Research Areas of “Environment and Global Change”, “Learning-Education-Knowledge“ and "Heterogeity and Cohesion“.
