Session Title: *A global Concept in local Contexts: Local understandings of
sustainable development and its practice*

*Session Abstract*

Sustainable development has evolved to become the dominant concept in
planning and policy decisions.  Within the context of global and national
discourse, sustainable development is “an article of faith, a shibboleth;
often used but little explained” (Tolba 1984). Despite the evolution of the
concept, the following questions remain- sustainable development for who,
on whose definitions or terms and whose interests? This session aims at
providing a more nuanced understanding of how sustainable development is
conceived by different actors and how this plays out in practice within the
socioeconomic and political context of local communities. Papers that
examine discursive representations of sustainable development in practice,
the politics of its governance and its differentiated impacts on groups of
people are welcomed.

Please submit abstracts of 150 words to the conference website (
https://cdesign.eventsair.com/2019-iag/abstracts). Submission of abstracts
closes 18 March, 2019.
