Structure and Organisation of Government 2019 Conference “The Vulnerability of Trust”

The Structure and Organisation of Government 2019 Conference “The Vulnerability of Trust” will be carried out on June 17 – 18, 2019.

One of the key determinants for good governance is trust. Citizens need trustworthy public organisations for a wide range of issues, such as fair criminal justice and equal access to education. However, there is a global concern regarding the impartiality and reliability of public organisations, as they appear to be under a constant and increasing pressure because of, among other things, social inequality and democratic disenchantment. Institutional ineffectiveness, a failure to meet citizens’ demands, corruption, and the waste of public resources are also associated with a decline of trust in government.

Likewise, public organisations depend on citizens’ trust for their legitimacy and reputation, as well as for the voluntary social participation necessary for core public tasks such as taxation, law enforcement and regulatory compliance. Moreover, trust is also key for the relations between administration and politics – under pressure by political populism – and for the internal organisation of public entities. The vulnerability of trust in public institutions and organisations is a growing concern for the structure and organisation of government and for the provision of public services. This also gives a special rationale to hosting the SOG conference in Latin America, where concerns about low trust in government and its implications are a classic theme.

Deadline for applications: March 1, 2019.

2ndDurban International Conference on Public Participation “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation”

The 2ndDurban International Conference on Public Participation “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation” will be held on the 17-18 June 2019.

In both the political north and the political south, with increasing global inequality, there is evidence of growing economic marginalisation and social exclusion, and growing disaffection with the formal structures ofgovernment. In South Africa, efforts have been undertaken to challenge the marginalisation and exclusion of the majority since the advent of democracy 24 years ago. These attempts include wider and more meaningful Public Participation. This is a constitutional imperative in South Africa thatis intended to draw communities into direct engagement with policy and decision-making. The process of putting this into practice has not been without its challenges and contradictions. However,Public Participation remains a key means available in representative democracies to address economic marginalisation andsocial exclusion and to facilitateconversations with citizens.

Given the contextualisation above, the 2ndDurbanInternational Conference on Public Participation (ICPP 2) will have the theme “Economic Marginalisation, Social Exclusion and Public Participation”. Its aims will be as follows:

  • To understand the nature of the challenge governments in ‘developed’ and ‘developing’ countries face in addressing economic marginalisation and social exclusion
  • To identify which groups in societies are marginalised and why
  • To analyse the potential ofPublic Participation asa vehicle for change
  • To identify what is needed for Public Participation to achieve this potential.

Deadline for applications is the 15th of February, 2019.

International Conference “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Actions in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies“

The International Conference “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Actions in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies“ will be carried out in May 23-24, 2019.

1. Context and Rationale

Although the concept of collective action has been widely used in the field of social sciences, giving rise to the area of ​​social movements studies, little research has focused on the collaborative aspect of this action. In recent years, the emerging field of studies on the “sharing economy” has shed some long-overdue light on this aspect. However, some of the cases that have been described as part of this phenomenon, such as Uber or AirBnB, lack key collaborative traits in both their setup and praxis. So much so that scholars have called for the use of the term “true sharing economy” to distinguish the latter from more nuanced and complex experiences.

The concept of “sharing society” is inspired by the definition of collaborative collective action (Tejerina, 2016): “the group of practices and formal and informal interactions that take place among individuals, collectives or associations that share a sense of belonging or common interests, that collaborate and are in conflict with others, and that have the intent of producing or precluding social change through the mobilization of certain social sectors.”

This conference stems from the research project “Sharing Society. The Impact of Collaborative Collective Action. Analysis of the Effects of Practices, Bonds, Structures and Mobilizations in the Transformation of Contemporary Societies,” funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO CSO2016-78107-R), and hosted by the Collective Identity Research Center, University of the Basque Country (Spain).

2. Scope and Objectives

This international conference sets out to analyze the characteristics, trajectory and impact of collaborative collective actions in a context of erosion of the welfare state. It also seeks to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted in the fields of collaborative collective actions. The conference will address the following questions:

  • How, when and where does collaborative collective action occur?
  • Which are the characteristics of contemporary collaborative collective action?
  • What are the practical, symbolic, and legal effects of collaborative collective actions for the forging and recovery of social bonds?
  • What forms of interaction emerge from these types of actions?

We invite theoretical and empirical proposals that explore collaborative collective actions in different areas: work, production, consumption, culture, art, science, knowledge and education, solidarity with precarious groups, civic participation and politics. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Food and agricultural production: food sovereignty, agroecology, zero kilometer movement, food and sustainable soil experiences, urban agriculture and community gardens;
  • Arts: art and the commons, collaborative art and new forms of creative commons, distributed design;
  • Science and knowledge: collaborative forms of scientific production, citizen science;
  • Care and co-housing: solidarity networks for personal care, health care, age care, childcare, personal quantification movement, co-housing;
  • Culture: collaborative culture, open culture movement;
  • Economy, work and consumption: collaborative economy, circular economy, new forms of collaborative work and co-working, collaborative consumption, time banks, platforms for sharing resources and experiences;
  • Technology: Maker and DIY movement, open source technology initiatives, network manufacturing, medialab experiences, hacktivism;
  • Politics: collaborative forms of political and institutional governance, networks of cities, institutions and citizenship, participatory democracy, participatory budgeting, open government, collective intelligence for democracy.

We encourage the submission of papers drawing on theoretical and methodological approaches from diverse fields of study, such as the social sciences, humanities, architecture, urban planning and design. We also invite contributions from actors working with citizen participation in the sciences, arts, media and/or politics (e.g. in cultural institutions, cultural policy, social media platforms, cooperatives, and NGOs).

Abstracts submission deadline: September 16, 2018.
