JOIN A PANEL DISCUSSION: CHANGE AND EXCHANGE OF PLANNING IDEAS IN LATIN AMERICA at the International Planning History Society (IPHS) Conference (Delft, 17 to 21 July 2016)
We invite papers that explore the change and exchange of planning ideas among Latin American countries in the 20th and 21st century and /or discuss planning approaches in the continent, and their effectiveness to and flexibility towards challenges posed by social, economic and environmental sustainability.
We are specifically interested in questions such as:
Whether and how have Latin American planning systems been evolving to confront the new challenges of sustainability and resilience?
Which specific planning approaches can be identified in the countries of the LAC region, and how can they be characterized in terms of the answers to the traditional challenges of rapid urban growth and socio-spatial segregation?
How and why have national and local governments adopted good practices/innovations from other countries of the region of the Global South?
What is and has been the influence of international development agencies such as the World Bank, IADB and UN-Habitat in the diffusion and adoption of planning policies based on successful Latin American or Global South experiences?
This panel is organised by the Department of Urbanism of Delft University of Technology and NALACS, the Netherlands Association of Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Abstracts are due January 17 (extended deadline).
