Our second annual conference, “Layered Authority”, was held in Gothenburg, Sweden. Dealing with areas in which state and non-state actors may overlap in certain domains, this conference sought to showcase research that examines the ways in which different authorities interact, and the extent to which they complement or clash with each other, enabling us to understand how such interactions affect governance more broadly -- at the community as well as the state level. The conference stimulated dialogue on such questions among scholars, policymakers, and other members of the development community.
