GCRO to present at the XXII IPSA conference
- Date of publication: 09 July 2012
On 09 July 2012 Annsilla Nyar will be presenting a paper at the XXIInd World Congress of Political Science of the International Political Science Association (IPSA). She is part of a panel on the politics of race in contemporary South Africa: South Africa Moving beyond Race, which will critically examine the salience of race and racial identities in post-apartheid South Africa. Her presentation is based on a recently-published paper in Politikon journal: “Some new perspectives on South African Indians and ‘non-racialism’”.
Whilst in Spain, Annsilla will be reaching out to several leading Spanish research institutes engaged in cutting edge work on the development processes of cities and regions. These include the Fundacion Metropoli in Madrid, the Bilbao Metropoli 30 in Bilbao and key stakeholders from the Strategic Metropolitan Plan of Barcelona (PEMB) in Barcelona. A mutual process of knowledge sharing is envisaged which will allow fresh perspectives and new insights on key GCRO research projects such as Conceptualising the Gauteng City-Region (GCR) and Building an Inclusive GCR.
