The Department of Political Geography and Regional Studies at the University
of Łódź is considered to be the biggest research centre, with the largest group of researchers involved in the field of political geography in Poland. Over the last 25 years Professor Marek Koter has
managed to create in Łódź the Polish school of political geography,
stimulating the development of this science in Poland, educating new
political geographers every year and enjoying certain international esteem.
The Łódź political geography centre draws on the beautiful tradition of
Polish political geography developing in the interwar period in Lvov,
Cracow, Poznan and Warsaw.
