This one-day interdisciplinary conference, co-sponsored by the University of Westminster’s Centre for the Study of Democracy and Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment, will explore the possibility of going beyond the limitations of liberal-modernist policy-making and urban planning, and the implications of doing so, if we reconceptualise governance at different scales though the lens of 'design' rather than 'planning'.

We have three confirmed keynote speakers – Filip De Boeck (KU Leuven), Nathaniel Tkacz (University of Warwick), and Erik Swyngedouw (University of Manchester) – and three panels on 'embracing uncertainty',' algorithmic governance', and 'new topologies of planning'.

The event is free of charge and open to all, but registration is essential.
