International Conference on Purposeful Agency and Governance: A Bridgeable Gap
Venue & Date: University of Kent, Canterbury, U.K. Wed. 15th – Fri. 17th June 2016
Convenors: Giuliana B. Prato, Italo Pardo and Michael Fischer.
With specific reference to urban settings and the dynamic interactions between cities and regions, this conference aims to contribute to increasing our capacity to understand important processes of agency in a worldwide context marked by a
growing gap between citizenship and governance.
The conference welcomes ethnographically–based contributions that identify the main gaps and obstacles related to the development of purposeful agency and the normative changes needed to encourage, rather than frustrate, agency and good governance, intended as governance that promotes and makes the best of the local resources and styles of citizenship.
