The Planning Research Conference will be hosted by the University of Liverpool from 2nd-4th September 2019. The conference will bring together international researchers and practitioners to discuss the latest developments in planning. It will feature keynote talks from leaders in the field, roundtables, study tours and the opportunity to present work to colleagues. The conference will also provide visitors with an opportunity to visit Liverpool, a city which has changed hugely in the last 20 years yet retains a unique maritime history.
The theme of the 2019 conference is "Make Planning Great Again: Legitimacy and Justice in a Post-Truth World" and it aims to bring together perspectives on Planning that are critical and reflective, but also hopeful and forward-looking.
