Network Seminar: Combining state and non-state partnerships for effective place leadership

23 October 2018 - 24 October 2018

Place leadership research is at a critical juncture. After having reached a wide and new recognition about its importance thanks to work of several scholars (e.g. Beer & Clower, 2014; Collinge et al. 2010; Liddle, 2010; Sotarauta, 2015; Sotarauta et al. 2017), it has now to gain consistency and rigour to foster its contribution to a bigger range of work.

In this research network seminar, we encourage and invite research papers, short position papers, commentaries on hot topics/events (e.g. Brexit), and research designs, but are not limited to contributions that address:

  • How do we defining the role of civic society and civic institutions as community anchors?
  • Leadership and development in transition and post-transition contexts
  • How does place leadership contribute to development in the developing global south?
  • How does leadership fill the spaces that emerge as new policy tiers are created by political decisions, referenda,
    new political alliances, and independence movements?
