Kerstin Westin

Kerstin is a Professor of Human Geography, and her research focuses on how people act and are affected by their surroundings, both physically and socially, as well as what motives people have for moving and not moving, how they choose to travel, and how they arrange their daily life in various areas. Kerstin also studies how values and attitudes about, for example, forest and the rural areas affect the utilization and use of forest. The demands and wishes of one person are not always in line with those of others; and how we can understand the conflicts that arise in relation to the values, attitudes and specific conditions of the individual. Kerstin is active at Umeå University.
