Pre-Conference Training Workshop: The Systemic Dynamics of China’s Economic Development and the Systematic Implications for Contemporary Capitalism
This workshop aims to discuss the political economy of China’s development and its relationship with world capitalism from a historical materialist perspective.

The Workshop will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students, junior academics and activists who have a particular interest in acquainting themselves with the relevance of Marxian political economy to the contemporary world. In this workshop, scholars will be introducing different understandings of work in the contemporary context that draw upon, but not limited to, different interpretations of Marx. Sessions interrogate issues of the global division of labour, gendered labour and questions about automation and the rise in digital platforms that are changing the conditions and experiences of work.
The Agrarian Change Working Group invites you to submit proposals for individual papers, themed panels or streams of panels related to our lines of inquiry. These may include theoretical and empirical contributions, both historical and contemporary, for any part of the world. We are especially interested in empirically-grounded interventions in contemporary struggles and debates.
A major task is to assess critically the new orthodox heterodoxies, and how much they genuinely differ from neoclassical economics as well as how much they engage with, rather than contain or even dismiss, more radical alternatives across methodology, interdisciplinarity, theory and conceptualisation. Another task is how to promote a more deep-rooted political economy in teaching and research in the wake of the crisis and the mainstream responses to it.
At this year’s IIPPE Conference, we wish to continue the debates on the world economy that we started in Berlin and Pula, and discuss how they can contribute to envisioning and creating an alternative economy of the future.
The Poverty Working Group encourages contributions which shed light on critical theoretical approach of poverty and social needs. We are particularly interested in contributions that link theory to practice where there is an analysis of resistance and political mobilization around poverty highlighting strengths and weaknesses.
