Professor, Spatial planning and politics
Leader of Geography Master's programme
Sami Moisio is a human geographer who works on the interface of regional studies, planning and politics. Sami’s research interests include state spatial transformation, political geographies of Europeanization, city-regionalism, political geographies of economic geography, and the geopolitics of the knowledge-based society. Much of his current research is concerned with the ways in which different places, regions and spatialities (such as the “global”) are constituted, transformed and re-made in political processes and struggles, as well as in various social practices and knowledge production.
