CONFERENCE THEME AND SUB-THEMES

The pandemic is irreversibly reshaping the arena in which scholars and practitioners confront enduring and emerging dilemmas of governance and development. What results is a new future for the development community where adaptive responses to the pandemic would leave lasting effects on individual and community practices, and readiness for unforeseen disruptions becomes crucial. This new future poses new challenges, but it is also laden with opportunities.

The main motivation of the conference is to accommodate innovative ideas for the promotion of development in the new future through various governance approaches, as informed by experiences and learnings from the field and recent scholarship.

The conference accepts submissions for panels and individual papers on the sub-themes.

1. EMERGENT GOVERNANCE ISSUES AND INNOVATIONS

This sub-theme invites individual papers and panel proposals that tackle recurring and emergent challenges faced by governance actors in different development contexts. It includes case studies and comparative analyses of national or local experiences; especially on applications of governance approaches, corruption and integrity in public governance, resource mobilization, e-governance, and other emerging governance innovations, organizational sustainability, and socio-political issues affecting effective governance.

2. INNOVATION SYSTEMS IN THE NEW FUTURE

This sub-theme concerns studies related to formal and non-formal education, innovations in teaching and learning, use of ICT and other technologies in development, and other innovation prospects in the new future through panel sessions and individual papers.

3. DEVELOPMENT DILEMMAS FOR COMMUNITIES, LESSONS LEARNED, AND PROMISING INSIGHTS AND PERSPECTIVES FOR THE NEW FUTURE

The panels and papers in this sub-theme invites topics on disparities in impacts of the pandemic on disadvantaged groups, the informal sector, and communities, case and comparative experiences in the application of community innovations, risk management, and disaster response models, institutions in development, value of social safety nets, human and organizational capacity development needs, religious/socio-cultural considerations in meeting the SDGs, and other relevant community development issues.
