GPS: Governance, People and Space

GLD's 2021 Fall Workshop Series


September 1 - November 23, 2021



The Program on Governance and Local Development’s Fourth Annual Conference has invited researchers from different universities to present and discuss findings relating to this workshop’s theme: Governance, People and Space. This year, the workshops will be taking place as online seminars every second week throughout the fall and will be 1.5 hours long each. The conference aims to examine how governance mechanisms and outcomes vary across differences in people (e.g. gender, ethnicity) and space (e.g., neighborhoods, villages/cities, and other spatial contexts). We consider governance by both state and non-state acts and institutions and have welcomed proposals from both scholars and practitioners seeking to understand how processes and practices of governance differ across these spatial and demographic arena and the extent to which these arenas intersect.
