Conference “Founding Territorial Sciences”
The International College of Territorial Sciences (Cist) organises its conference in Meudon (France) from 23rd to 25th of november, 2011. The answers to the call for papers are expected before September 5, 2011.
The territory is pervasive in many challenges that contemporary societies are facing. Whether for the climate change or energy transition, aging population, increasing social inequality, urban-rural relations, migration and identity issues, or new international relations, the territorial dimension is significant and even decisive. Is this finding sufficient to justify the founding of a new scientific field, the "territorial sciences"?
