Among the myriad transformations facing contemporary society, those that occurred in the first decade of the 21st century deserve special mention for their impact on the geopolitical and territorial order, on the subjective dynamics of political participation, and, as could not be otherwise, on the processes of developing, implementing and evaluating public policies.

To analyze these changes, IEA’s Public Policies, Territoriality and Society Research Group will host the International Seminar on Geopolitical and Subjective Changes in the Processes of Political Participation and in the Production of New Territorialities on October 20-22, in the Auditorium of the School of Arts, Sciences and Humanities (EACH) of the University of São Paulo (see schedule).

The seminar will present an interdisciplinary view of the subject with contributions of researchers from Portugal, Brazil, Spain, France, Mexico and Peru. The emphasis will be discussions on the changes taking place in the planning and management of public policies brought forth by:

  • the crisis of the Nation-State, concomitant with a strengthening of nationalism;
  • the porosity of borders caused by globalization and the strengthening of supranational organizations;
  • the emergence of social protests that demand new forms of political order, as well as increased participation in governance.


The event will be broadcast live on the web.
