Questions related to Political Geography
Hello, for an article I am looking for maps of the Crimean peninsula (ideally textbooks or atlases) from Russia and Ukraine to compare. Does anyone have appropriate materials or know of suitable contacts (textbook publishers or universities)? Best regards.
Copyright issues are a secondary concern as their principal application will fall under the terms of 'fair use'
Hi everyone, I'm going to graduate in one month. Among three topics, I chose the one about "Sovereignty and regionalisms". Could you please advise me on papers, books, articles about this topic? Thank you very much.
I'm doing a preliminary research on previous works in
this field. In particular I'm searching for papers related to tourism
gamification case studies or an analysis\comparison of more works from
a political geography point of view including more experiences
I’m trying to think this question through with the help of concepts like ‚differential inclusion’ and ‚obscene exclusion’ as Nicola De Genova suggests in "Spectacles of migrant ‘illegality’: the scene of exclusion, the obscene of inclusion" (2003). Maybe some of you have an other ideas on how I could find an answer to this question?
My research concerns to what extent climate change exacerbate gender inequality in Sub-Saharan Africa. Time period: 1992-2012. I have climate data for the majority of the selected 30 countries and various control variables, but am struggling to find gender data. UN:s gender related development index is not sufficient and was therefore aiming to modify the data from the reports and use the 'Relative Status of Women' index (A. Geske Dijkstraa & Lucia C. Hanmer, 2011) http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1080/13545700050076106?journalCode=rfec20.
It seems like there is only complete data in some of the UN development reports.
As we all know that based on their experiences & perceptions of urbanization & trends, western theories contextualize generalization to the the third world cities. there are lot of ambiguity and confusion about it. One of the interesting discussions participated by Prof.Ananya Roy & Solomon Benjamin has illustrated the direct examples to disapprove to unify the global theory of sub-urbanisation.
Annaya Roy directly disfavored these arguments and suggested these generalization are not the universal ones as they can not spread beyond certain boundaries, hence they are not hegemonic theory. Similarly, Prof.Benjamin suggested that this big terminologies loose its significance to explain the realistic situation at micro level and that too from global south cities.He emphasized upon the ethnographic cases which could directly give the flavor of that case/ site.
Definitely, the formulation of theories should come from the empirical understand of the local cases, then it can be validated for similar context featuring homogeneous characteristics in terms of governance, economy and institutional aspects.
I'm looking for data on people moving in and out of Miyagi prefecture,and Ishinomaki City in particular, before and after the Tohoku disaster of March 2011. I want to find out who is migrating into Miyagi and Ishinomaki, and why. Where to find raw numbers would be good, plus any published research on the issue would be very helpful, thanks.
My study area includes a number of residential areas (rural) with different population size that are distributed unequally from the grouse sites. Do you think that we can generate fuzzy map with population size (I feel population size variable is a discrete data) across region? if so, how?
Do you consider geopolitics as a part or related field of political geography, or perhaps a doctrine instead of scientific discipline?
