2nd International Conference “The Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism (SVOC) – Conflicting liberalism and economic patriotism in present day capitalist systems”, IWE Budapest, 10-11 November 2016

HungaryThe Institute of World Economics of the Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Hungarian Academy of Sciences, together with the Center for European Neighborhood Studies, Central European University, is organising the 2nd International Conference “The Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism (SVOC) – Conflicting liberalism and economic patriotism in present day capitalist systems”. The conference will take place on 10-11 November 2016.

Since its beginning the Conference has been trying to document the extent and reach of state capitalism around the world and explore its economic implications. The 2016 Conference aims particularly at exploring the ideas around liberalism and economic patriotism in present day capitalist systems.

The idea of the conference is to collect contributions on the clashes of liberal economic thought and economic patriotism on national and supranational levels during the past 10-15 years. Main strands of interest are the transition process in Central and Eastern Europe, European integration (“fortress Europe” vs. TTIP, conflicting national and supranational interests), emerging markets in world trade and capital flows as well as theoretical contributions on liberalism and economic patriotism today.

The keynote speakers will be Leszek Balcerowicz (Warsaw School of Economics) and Ben Clift (University of Warwick).

Conference fees:

Registration fees: 100 euros (if paid after September 17, 2016)
