IGU Annual Conference 2017
From Thursday 19 October 2017
To Saturday 21 October 2017

The 2017 Annual Conference of the IGU Commission on ‘Geography of Governance’ (IGU-GoG), organized in collaboration with the Department of Cultural Heritage - University of Salento, will be held in Lecce, Italy, from 19 to 21 October 2017.

Themed 'Local Governance in the New Urban Agenda', the conference aims to explore and to discuss the changes, challenges and opportunities confronting Local Governance in the context of the new urban paradigm associated with the HABITAT III New Urban Agenda, a 20-year strategy for sustainable urbanization, adopted in October 2016 in Quito, Ecuador.

Considering the commitments for action associated with this new urban paradigm, the conference aims to address, but is not limited to, the following issues:

The role of local government in the definition and implementation of more inclusive, transparent, accountable, effective and transformational local policies for sustainable and resilient urban development.

  1. Sustainable, people-centred, long-term, and integrated approaches to urban development.
  2. New ways to plan, finance, govern, and manage cities and other non-urban / rural settlements.
  3. Multi-stakeholder, multi-level institutional cooperation among all tiers of government. National urban policies and the changing role of sub-national government in urban development.
  4. The roles of cities/city-regions within transnational / national planning and governance schemes.
  5. Policy transfer across local and city-regional entities.
  6. Global urban policy principles and local governance practices: correspondence and disjuncture.
  7. Alternative visions and alternative models for local governance.
  8. Climate change and the challenges for local governance.
  9. The governance of smart, green and integrated urban transport.
  10. Indicators for the governance of local sustainable development.

The organizers welcome proposals for papers on any of these issues, from different theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches. The conference will be an opportunity for inter-disciplinary discussions on a broad spectrum of innovative research within the field of the geography of local governance.
