Why is unemployment higher in some regions than others? What are the social and economic consequences in depopulating areas? How do you deal with different institutions to plan and build new residential areas? Human geographers investigate society from a spatial perspective, because social phenomena happen in specific places, at specific times, for specific reasons and with specific impacts.
