3rd International Conference on Governance and Development
19-21 July 2023 | Manila, Philippines (In-person Conference)
GOVERNANCE AND DEVELOPMENT IN TRANSITION
Currently, the world is undergoing emergent challenges: social and economic recovery, the election of new governments, changes in agriculture and climate that affects global food and supply chains, and calls for timely action on environmental sustainability. These lead to substantial paradigm shifts among institutions and reshaped spaces of power, with new players and stakeholders emerging as crucial decision-makers.
This year’s conference theme initiates agenda-setting conversations and debates recognizing the agencies of institutions and communities to lead governance and development to better pathways.
Institutions in transition

- How do leadership address transition issues related to, but not limited to, pandemics, education crisis, growing inequality, human and social security issues, climate emergency, gender injustice, and others?
- How will institutional innovations, such as in agricultural and rural development, enhance human capabilities and capacities in communities in transition?
New ways of rethinking governance and development
- In what ways do our traditional lens and analyses able to analyze and predict governance and development pathways after social, political, and economic transitions?
- How can data and information can shape critical policy decisions?
- What are the new ways of opening governance to accommodate broad-based forms of governmental regimes?
Shared future and prosperity
- After these transitions, how do institutions forge partnerships and cooperation toward shared prosperity?
