[CFP] Conference 2020 – Financialisation Working Group
2020 IIPPE Annual Conference
Beyond Neoliberalism and Populism: On the Political Economy of our Societies and Economies
September 9-11, 2020, Ferrara, Italy
Coordinators: Bruno Bonizzi, Ezgi Unsal
We welcome proposals for individual research papers, panels and other presentations that relate to the broad interests of the Financialisation Working Group at IIPPE’s 2020 Annual Conference.
Following the abandonment of Keynesian theory and policies after the 1970s, a broad set of theory-making practices and social policies was introduced towards greater market liberalisation and greater use of finance and financial instruments for economic growth. As the decade of 2010s was further characterised by the rise of populism politically, the interrelations between economic theory/policy-making and political populism emerge as a crucial area of investigation.
Our working group is working towards the promotion of the political economy on finance in economics and other social sciences. In accordance with the general call for papers, contributions to the IIPPE FWG may include, but not limited to, proposals addressing the following key questions:
- How does financialisation relate to the rising trend of populism across globe? What differences can be observed in developed and developing economies?
- How can finance and financialisation be addressed in the current context of neoliberalism? Is there an underlying causal relationship between the rising importance of finance in the world economy and neoliberalism as a set of social, economic and political policy agenda?
- What are the future prospects for the world economy given the primary role of finance? How can appropriate economic and social policies be designed to capture such prominence and its implications?
We welcome panel proposals and single paper proposals. If you are proposing a panel, all papers need to be submitted individually as above following the IIPPE conference procedures. In addition, please send an email to working group coordinators Bruno Bonizzi (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Ezgi Unsal (email@example.com), indicating the panel title, paper titles and author names.
