The Center for the Study of Citizenship invites proposals for its 2015 annual conference that explore the many dimensions of the theme of governance and citizenship. March 12-14, 2015.
The affordances of citizenship are bound in many ways to structures of governance that provide and at the same time deny access to power. While formal structures of governance establish rights and responsibilities, there are many additional informal forms of governance people use to orchestrate and affirm their community membership, among them are civic organizations, community groups, and NGOs.
We welcome proposals that focus on:
formal or informal governance;
local, national, and international governance;
as well as proposals that explore the nature of governance as a means of delimiting access, authority, power, and responsibility
This list touches the surface of topics connected to governance and citizenship and is intended to generate ideas.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words are welcomed for consideration. Proposals, along with a short biography (50 words), should be submitted in one file to the Center no later than October 15, 2014
