From June 30 to July 3, 2011, researchers from the Governance group, the MCRI Advisory Board, and several international collaborators met at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research in Leipzig to hold a workshop on the theme of "Suburban Governance". In addition, the graduate summer school students and fifteen architecture and sociology students from Poland attended the workshop.
The papers presented at the workshop included both theoretical studies such as "Governing Suburbia: Modalities and Mechanisms of Suburban Governance" by Pierre Hamel and Roger Keil, as well as papers that examine the processes of suburban governance in specific places, including North America, Europe, Africa, and South-East Asia.
The goal of the workshop was to present and refine these papers in preparation for an edited book on suburban governance.
