IGU Commission Geography of Governance
Annual Conference – 2022

Mexico City, 29 – 31 August 2022

The International Conference on Local Governance in a Time of Global Emergencies, convened by the International Geographical Union (IGU) Commission on Geography of Governance, and organized in collaboration with the Metropolitan Autonomous University – UAM and the National Autonomous University of Mexico – UNAM, will be held in Mexico City, Mexico, on August 29-31, 2022.

The Conference aims to explore and to discuss the challenges and innovations confronting Local and Urban Governance, in the context of global emergencies. It will be a forum for the discussion of the state-of-the-art of research on these issues in the different regions of the world.

Within this overall goal, the 2022 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, in both the North and Global South.

The Conference will bring together researchers from academia, public and private sectors, and non-governmental 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.

The conference is organized into four main tracks:

Track 1 – Local Government: Trends, Challenges and Innovations – This track aims to examine and to discuss current practices, challenges, and innovations in local and urban governance, and to compare local government systems and practices, and its recent reforms, including those associated with digitization, in different economic systems or varieties of Capitalism, in the North and in the Global South.

Track 2 – The Responses of Local Governance to the Global Climate Emergency – This track seeks to address the challenges and the policy responses to Climate Change / Climate Emergency, in the field of local and urban governance.

Track 3 – Local Government Response Towards the COVID-19 Pandemic – This track aims to explore and to discuss the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic on local government and the local policy responses for the post-pandemic.

Track 4 – Local Governance, Spatial Planning and Development – This track examines and discusses the role of spatial planning in shaping multi-level territorial governance and the local policy agenda.

In each of these four tracks we welcome country and cross-country approaches, studies of individual cities or municipalities, and the comparison of cities, municipalities or countries with one another, and with those in other regions of the world. The scope of our sessions is international, including comparative research.

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 and Urban Governance.

The final program may combine papers submitted for different tracks, if the paper’ themes and approach so recommend.

We welcome abstracts of those engaged in the activities of the IGU Commission on Geography of Governance, as well as from anyone with a relevant contribution in this field.

The Conference is being planned primarily as an On-site / In-person Conference. However, given the uncertainty associated with the Covid-19 Pandemic, an On-line / Virtual component is also being considered.
