In his lecture series, Patrick Le Galès contributes to the research agenda on governance that has been pioneered and developed at the MPIfG. He looks at three different dimensions in the governance of mobile societies. His third and final lecture in the series examines what is and isn’t being governed and uses the example of the metropolis to think about the limits of governance, the dark side of governance, and the discontinuities of governance.
Patrick Le Galès, 2013 Scholar in Residence am MPIfG, was giving a lecture series in March and April 2013 on "Governing Mobile Societies." Le Galès is CNRS director of research at the Centre d’Études européennes, Sciences Po, Paris.
