Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Spain

University was founded in 1968. The founders aimed to establish four principles of autonomy: freedom to select teaching staff, admission available to all students (but with a limited number), freedom to create its own study plans and freedom to administrate the University's capital. It is therefore a young university, but in its short history it has moved forward at rapid pace.

The Department of Geography was established in 1973. Its main research lines are Gender, Migration, Planning and Environmental Sciences.  It has a long tradition of academic collaboration with a number of international universities. It holds more than 80 Erasmus exchange agreements with other European Universities. The Geography Department edits the academic journal Documents d’Anàlisi Geogràfica.
