Resilient Urban Development versus the Right to the City? Actors, Risks and Conflicts in the Light of International Agreements (SDG and NUA) – What can the academia contribute?

This two-day international conference will focus on a critical review of international agreements for urban development, such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG, 2015) and the New Urban Agenda (NUA, 2016), and aims at highlighting potentially conflicting goals in their implementation and application. The concepts of good governance, resilient urban development and the right to the city will serve as normative frameworks for the conference.

The conference is structured along two main foci: The first day is titled 'Resilient Urban Development Versus the Right to the City? Risks and Conflicts' and will set the scene with analytical and theoretical components based on results of empirical research and conceptual and theoretical work on the topics of good governance, resilient cities and the right to the City. The second day will focus on a critical review of the action-oriented international agreements of the SDG and the NUA titled 'Risks, Conflicts and Contradictions in the Implementation of the SDGs and the New Urban Agenda in the Global South. What Can the Academia Contribute?'

The conference language will be English. The target groups are researchers and practitioners on urban development both from the global North and global South from a wide range of disciplines.

The international agreements mentioned above will shape urban development and policy debate for the next 15 to 20 years, and will thus influence the international research agenda as well as future planning education. However, little is known so far on the operationalisation and unintended outcomes of these agreements. Therefore, the conference will contribute to discussions on the risks and positive elements of the agendas, and will help define further research topics.

Abstracts of between 150 to 250 words should be submitted by 30 March 2018 to .
