Centre for Space, Place and Society

Centre for Space, Place and Society (CSPS)

The Centre for Space, Place and Society (CSPS) brings together researchers from four chair groups within Wageningen University & Research (WUR) – Cultural Geography (GEO), Health and Society (HSO), Rural Sociology (RSO) and Sociology of Development and Change (SDC) – and beyond to advance critical-constructive scholarship within the social sciences. Our particular focus is on issues of socio-spatial and environmental justice. In investigating dynamics of spatial and social rootedness, connections, and circulations, with special attention to questions of inequality, exclusion, difference and plurality, CSPS seeks to translate knowledge into practical action in pursuit of a more just and equitable world.
