3rd International Conference on Governance and Development

19-21 July 2023 | Manila, Philippines (In-person Conference)


Conference Theme:
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.

Conference Agenda

The 3rd ICGD will address the following questions to support this year’s theme:

Institutions in transition

  • What transitions do communities and institutions face locally, regionally, and globally?
  • How does leadership address transition issues related to, but not limited to, pandemic, education crisis, growing inequality, human and social security, 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 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?
  • How can the social, political, and economic pressures transform how we think about sustainability?
  • How can institutions reinvent and innovate toward rights-based and people-centered growth and development?
