Workshop: “In Debate: Research for Theory, for Action, or for What?”

Chaired by John Friedmann and Laura Saija.

John Friedmann and Laura Saija have been exploring in-depth the borders between planning research and practice, theory and action, engaging with a plurality of contexts and cases. During the workshop, they will share their experiences in an open discussion, with the aim to debate how theory informs action, and the other way round; why practice is necessary to research, and the other way round.

Wrap-up and conclusions by chairs (10 minutes).
