GPS: Governance, People and Space

2021 Annual GLD Conference 




Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, we have decided to postpone this year's annual conference until 2021. Next year's conference will keep the same theme and will feature many of the same participants and topics. We will provide further information about the conference, including the new date and venue, later on in the year.

We look forward to seeing you next year. Until then stay safe and #washyourhands.

The Program on Governance and Local Development at the University of Gothenburg will hold its fourth annual conference in 2021. Entitled "GPS: Governance, People and Space,” 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 actors and institutions, and welcome proposals from both scholars and practitioners seeking to understand how processes and practices of governance differ across these spatial and demographic arenas and the extent to which these arenas intersect.
