The global pandemic, climate change, Brexit and the rise of nationalist leaders keep the world´s governance systems busy and challenge their ability to adapt to changing conditions. Polycentric governance structures and processes can help improve democratic decision-making and resolution of social problems. Polycentricity is a theme cutting across many of IASC´s focal areas allowing for reflections across these areas. The conference on polycentricity will be held on May 17-19, 2021 and aims to help advance our understanding of how polycentric governance works in practice and how knowledge can be shared within the diverse research community.
