Call for Papers – Panel(s) organised by the Moving Beyond Capitalism (MBC) Working Group
April 16, 2021
MBC WG coordinator: Al Campbell, firstname.lastname@example.org
Dear IIPPE members,
In the years before COVID in our conferences in Lille, Pula and Berlin, the Moving Beyond Capitalism (MBC) WG had a number of interesting panels each year. As of when the world went into hibernation (or part of the world …) our WG was hoping to start some projects, besides our continued participation in the yearly IIPPE AGM. We had not got started on those projects when COVID hit, and of course momentum has dissipated in the yearlong hibernation. The hope is that we will be able to have one or two panels in our virtual conference this year, and then start a discussion among ourselves on a project or two that we would like to do before the IIPPE conference in September 2022 (hopefully live???).
While quite obviously this pandemic has strongly highlighted why moving beyond capitalism is continually becoming more necessary for the good of humanity, there is no requirement to tie your presentation to the pandemic (for our WG or any WG). As in past years, we are open to any paper discussing any aspect of moving beyond capitalism, and then we will take what is submitted and work to create panels out of them.
The Electronic Proposal Form (about the same as in past years) is on the IIPPE site at www.iippe.org. It will be open for proposals from April 15 to May 15.
As always, please contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions about submitting a proposal to the MBC WG panels.
In solidarity, Al
