Producing legitimacy

On 23rd April 2013, Zuzana Hrdlickova will present a paper at the ‘Producing legitimacy: Governance against the odds’ conference in Cambridge. Her paper titled ‘Concrete governance: shelters and legitimacy’ compares material forms of state-led disaster preparedness: cyclone shelters in India and nuclear bunkers in Switzerland (using her own and Joe Deville’s fieldwork) and how these  concrete structures relate to concepts of governmental legitimacy.
