Proposals could examine the development of alternative collective and community economies in different parts of the world and investigate their potential to combat the individualisation and marketisation of human action and to create transformational relations toward a cooperative and solidaristic economy and society.

The Africa and Social Reproduction Working Groups invite proposals for individual papers or panels in a joint stream. Interdisciplinary research on social reproduction in Africa has yielded insights into work, production and reproduction that move beyond the growth and productivity data to examine qualitative and local patterns of economic and social change with a gender perspective. They show the inadequacy of linear models of capitalist development and the importance of empirically rich analysis in the historical and theoretical context.

Two complimentary parts of any social change in history have been a criticism of what is wrong with the exiting situation, and a suggestion of an alternative that would not suffer from those problems. Existing political economy has almost exclusively focused on the former, with some political economists, particularly some from some Marxist traditions, arguing it is inappropriate (“unscientific”) to engage in the latter, that doing so is harmful to promoting social change. IIPPE’s Moving Beyond Capitalism (MBC) working group is dedicated to promoting the discussion of the latter among political economists. For the past several years the MBC working group has participated in IIPPE’s annual conferences with panels. This year it intends to do so again, and this is a Call for proposals for papers and activist proposals. This Call is open to any political economy contribution addressing anything related to the issue of Moving Beyond Capitalism.
