Education:

  • Sc. in Sociology (University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Sociology, Political Sciences and Journalism, now Faculty of Social Sciences, 1974)

  • Ph.D. in Sociology (University in Zagreb, Faculty of Philosophy, 1990)

 

Fieldwork and research interests:

My research interests varied during the academic career, but mainly have been focused on the study of socio spatial processes and structures, on different aspects of urban culture and on the socio-spatial transformations under the impact of new information-communication technologies. Particular attention has been given to study the spatial (regional and urban) planning, and decision-making processes with regard to the use of scarce resources (space, natural resources), to the problems of rationality in planning and to the study of the environmental awareness and green social movements.
