Closer Than You Think?
Local Governments in Spain and Canada

Francisco Velasco, Autonomous University of Madrid
Friday, Sept 6 12:30 - 1:30pm
Social Science Centre, Room 6210
A light lunch will be provided

Hosted by the Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance

Local governments in Spain and Canada are rarely (if ever) compared directly in the scholarly literature. Yet, as Prof. Velasco will suggest in his presentation, a comparative approach reveals some striking similarities in the structure and operation of these two ostensibly very different local government systems.

Francisco Velasco is Professor of Administrative Law and Director of the Institute of Local Government Law at the Autonomous University of Madrid.  He is currently in residence at the Centre for Urban Policy and Local Governance, conducting research on urban-rural relations in Canada and Spain as part of a major collaborative research initiative sponsored by the European Union.
