Refining a Conceptual and Operational Framework for Analysing Territorial Governance in Processes of Strategic Spatial Planning at the Urban Regional Level

Short research period at Department of Human Geography, Stockholm University on: 
Refining a Conceptual and Operational Framework for Analysing Territorial Governance in Processes of Strategic Spatial Planning at the Urban Regional Level
The purpose of this visit to the Department of Human Geography at Stockholm University hosted by Professor Peter Schmitt, is to refine a conceptual and operational framework for analysing territorial governance in the context of strategic spatial plan-making and plan-implementation processes at the urban regional level. This visit comes in the context of the CONCUR project, From Plans to Land Change: How Strategic Spatial Planning Contributes to the Development of Urban Regions, coordinated by Dr Anna Hersperger (Swiss Federal Research Institute WSL) and funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNF).
This international visit, while brief, is intended to (i) refine the visiting fellow’s proposed framework for analysing territorial governance, within the context of strategic spatial planning, by identifying drawbacks and opportunities, and (ii) discuss with Stockholm-based experts how territorial governance and strategic spatial planning can cross-fertilize with each other.
