Centre for Analysis of Regional Systems

Centre for analysis of regional systems is generally concerned with theoretical and empirical aspects of spatial organisation of geographical phenomena and attempts to promote the results of our effort. Specifically, we aim to study regional systems of the Czech Republic, their historical development, current patterns and future prospects, employing particularly quantitative methods of human geography.

Centre enhances inter-institutional cooperation in geographical research and organises the Geographical discussion forum on yearly basis in order to mediate meetings of the Czech and Slovak geographers interested in the issue of the spatial organisation of the geographical phenomena.

Centre is inspired in its research approaches by the Moravian geographical school that was established particularly at the Institute of geography of the Czechoslovak Academy of Sciences in Brno in the 1960s. Centre builds upon the work of the preceding informal research group dealing with various questions of geographical organisation of space and supported by three grant projects.
