This area of research looks into the complex interactions between societies and cultures and the regions that they occupy. Across a geographic field the centre of which is the area covered by the Pyrénées-Méditerranée region, research is carried out across embedded scales, from local to international level.

It is underpinned by human and social science disciplines, within which issues to do with the relationship between humankind and the environment, the role played by various stakeholders, languages, the development of legal, linguistic and economic practices and standards – and markets in particular – are all central to concerns.

The approach involves creating knowledge through fundamental and academic research so that it can be used by the region for its most practical applications, and so that it can be shared among the general public as widely as possible.
