Research works are situated at the connection of population and political geography. An essential element of study is to present progress of Polish and global geopolitical thought and ideas. Within this research task, the most important geopolitical conceptions will be analyzed, originators of which are researchers such as: A. Danilewski, T. Masaryk, J. Kjellen, I. Dusinski, F. Ratzel, A. Mahan. The principal executor of this topic is P. Eberhardt.

Research studies in the field of political geography, broadly conceived (also from the perspective of its historical evolution), focus on the issues of geopolitical location of Poland, as well as evolution of political landscape of Poland and central-east Europe (M. Kowalski).

An important part of the said research task constitute studies pertaining to ethnic situation of countries of central-east Europe. The subject of our interest are, in the main, Poland and countries of the former USSR, especially those in close neighborhood with Poland (P. Eberhardt, M. Kowalski, M. Kupiszewski and E. Jankowska). The research topic embraces subject-matter of ethnic differentiation, spatial and national isolation, as well as the issues of national identity and quantitative transformations and migrations (R. Wiśniewski).

Also, the research works are carried out on comparing ethnic and social differentiation of large urban agglomerations of Central and West Europe, as exemplified by Warsaw (Poland) and Leeds (the UK) (M. Kupiszewski).

In addition, the studies that are concerned with socio-demographic transformations in Poland (i.e., depopulation processes, ageing of society and their impact on various aspects of human activity) will be taken up, with a special focus on borderland areas (R. Wiśniewski).
