This session explores new and emerging partnerships that are being developed to promote knowledge production in the urban peripheries of low and middle income countries, especially those aimed at supporting vulnerable groups in pursuit of just, sustainable futures.
This session addresses conference theme 5: Urbanising futures and knowledge production. It focuses attention on new and emerging partnerships that are being developed to promote knowledge production in the urban peripheries of low and middle income countries, especially those aimed at supporting vulnerable groups [e.g. young women, people with a disability, older people etc] in pursuit of just, sustainable futures. The papers in the session will explore partnerships that are active in one or more low-income urban peripheries, and include reference to the methods being employed and the challenges and opportunities that partnership presents. Papers could relate to partnerships between any of the following: academics, international non-governmental organisations, local non-governmental organisations, local government, national government, peripheral communities, the private sector. We particularly welcome papers that focus on mobility justice in urban peripheries.
Methodology: Session panellists will upload short [10 minute maximum] pre-recorded powerpoint presentations. Panellists will be expected to watch other people's presentations in advance of the synchronous discussion session. The convenors will review the pre-recorded presentations and identify key questions specifically focused on partnership, aiming for a spread of questions across the different types of partners and partnerships that form presentation foci. These questions will be prompts for the synchronous discussion initiated by the convenors. Each presenter will give a 2 minute pitch to summarise their partnership's attributes and challenges and another 2 minutes to address a key question from the convenors directed at further exploring the features outlined. Discussion will then open to the audience with convenors' moderation.
