The Conference ‘Paradigm Shifts in Local and Urban Governance’ aims to explore and to discuss shifts and innovations in Local and Urban Governance, in the context of the increasingly complex and uncertain policy context, at multiple governance levels, namely in crisis management. It will be a forum for the discussion of state-of-the-art of research on these issues.
Within this overall goal, the 2023 Annual Conference of the IGU Commission on Geography of Governance also aims to provide the opportunity for comparisons between countries, in different regions of the world.
The Conference will bring together researchers from academia, public and private sectors, non-governmental and non-profit organizations, in an effort to present and debate their research on local and urban governance, and to share knowledge, viewpoints, methods, research outcomes, and policy ideas.
