[CFP] Conference 2020 – Urban and Regional PE/Neoliberalism Working Groups
CFP: Urban and Regional Political Economy Stream, IIPPE Conference, Ferrara, Italy, September 9-11, 2020
Deadline for Submission of Abstracts: March 15, 2020
The Urban and Regional Political Economy and Neoliberalism working groups of IIPPE welcome contributions on the theme of how neoliberalism is transforming cities. We are especially interested in papers linking urban political economy and financial geography. The new relationship between local governments and financial markets is taking different forms in different geographies under neoliberalism, resulting in high financial risks and a significant change in the structure of local governments. Following this framework, we particularly welcome papers on:
- Restructuring of local state at the time of financialisation.
- Debtfare states at the local level: municipal debt, financialisation of infrastructure (i.e. transportation, water, and other public services).
- The political economy of municipal financial mechanisms: new financial mechanisms and tools (i.e. municipal bonds, land value capture).
