A core strength of the ESEP Master's specialisation is the combination of a thorough theoretical and methodological foundation with a critical exploration of actual spatial developments and policy processes. Theoretical approaches taught cover institutional perspectives and theories on European integration, planning and policy-making. Methodologically, the focus is on comparative approaches to allow for a better understanding of differences in planning systems and policies across Europe. Teaching and learning take place in small student groups and are based on interactive approaches.
