6th Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism 2020 Held (IWE CERS, Hungary)

In 2020, the SVOC conference on ‘Emerging Market Economies – Alternative Development Path’ was held online due to the Covid-19 pandemic on November 26 – 27, 2020. As a live event remained a risky endeavor, particularly with the prospect of a potential second wave of infections, the organizers decided on the online version which allowed for the same kind of meaningful and substantive discussions, without it being exposed to travel and other restrictions.

Emerging Market Economies – Alternative Development Path was the first digital conference in the history of SVOC conferences. The participants’ kind feedback proves that it was a largely successful attempt at having meaningful conversations under difficult circumstances. We do hope we can resume live conferencing next year.
