Research title: Research Topic: The role of local government in SDGs implementation: A case of Glasgow city, with special focus on the potential and limits of SDG 11 to support migrant communities.
My research project focuses on the role of local government in SDGs implementation: A case of Glasgow city, monitoring the progress of urban governance on the potential and limits of SDG 11 to support migration. My research seeks to analyse SDG 11 (Sustainable Cities and Communities) at a local level, examining the specific challenges of global indicators in the Scottish context. The study aims to build a conceptual framework through a multi-stakeholder analysis with the aim of integrating distinct stakeholder visions into the selection of indicators based on the Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis. Initially, the existing urban interactions in different levels based on the SDGs global targets will be evaluated and distinct national and local indicators for the implementation of SDG 11 will be analysed. In so doing, the first part of the research will include a documentary analysis of the existing policies and strategies through a systematic and comprehensive literature review. The second part will focus to build a conceptual framework through a multi-stakeholder analysis with the aim of integrating distinct stakeholder visions into the selection of indicators based on the Multi-Actor Multi-Criteria Analysis (MAMCA). MAMCA is a type of multi-criteria analysis technique that has been recently used in different practical research and academic studies worldwide to analyse policies and criteria based on the opinions of different stakeholders.
