Call for papers: Cross-border metropolitan regions (Lille, France, 3-4 February 2022)
We are soliciting participation for a two-day workshop on ‘cross-border metropolitan regions’, which will be held at the "Cité scientifique" in Villeneuve-d'Ascq (in the vicinity of Lille) on February 3rd and 4th,2022.
The workshop is primarily financed by the (1) I-Site Consortium, which seeks to foster engagement between the universities of Ghent, Kent, Leuven, and Lille, and (2) a research grant facilitating the establishment of the KU Leuven Urban Studies Institute (LUSI) (3) the laboratory TVES in University of Lille.
The event will consist of two different, yet complementary parts:
- on February 3rd, there will be introductory keynote addresses and a panel debate with key policymakers (broadly defined)
- on February 4th, the focus is on academic presentations dealing with a wide range of relevant topics in the study of cross-border metropolitan regions (CBMRs).
