A public lecture by Jonathan Rigg, Geography Department, Durham University.
This public lecture emerges from a puzzle: why are our explanations for the patterns of the world so often incomplete and far from universal in their application? Look across the development experience of Southeast Asia over the last half century and it is tempting to see a pattern of change and a set of developmental paths that can be ‘explained’ by reference to unifying conceptual models and policy frameworks. This lecture will direct attention to the unplanned, unseen and unexpected and, therefore, to the gaps between planning designs and planning experiences, between what is seen and measured and what ultimately proves to be important, and between expectations and outcomes.
Cost: Free, but RSVP essential.
