PAST EVENTS:

8th The Role of State in Varieties of Capitalism

Structural Transformations in a Crises-driven World Economy 

November 24-25, 2022

Budapest, Hungary

The SVOC2022 conference is organized by the Institute of World Economics of the Centre for Economic and Regional Studies, Budapest, Hungary and Democracy Institute of Central European University. The theme this year is ‘Structural Transformations in a Crises-driven World Economy’, which will take a hybrid form with both onsite and online sessions. CEU in Budapest will host the event with a program encompassing two full days of exciting keynote lectures, panel discussions, and presentations.

The world economy faced multiple crises in recent decades – from the Global Financial Crisis, to the Euro Crisis, the Climate Crisis, the Covid-19 pandemic and, more recently, the war in Ukraine – leading to a renaissance of state intervention in economies throughout the world. Consequently, structural transformation and adaptation to address newly arising challenges (re-)entered the agenda of academic and policy debates in both less and more advanced parts of the world economy. This renewed interest in the analysis of the state’s role in supporting structural change, building economic and social resilience in times of crises, while events have also led to a rise in research on comparative capitalism. Cutting-edge debates in comparative capitalism tend to focus on extending its respective
theoretical framework and expanding its geographical coverage to incorporate “underresearched” regions and countries. Recent theoretical developments reinvigorated the role of the state and tended to focus on macroeconomic demand, through which they began to address the structural dimension of development. Yet, human and environmental issues remain neglected.

In-line with these new tendencies and perspectives, the conference aims to contribute to both theoretical debates and bringing together more applied research on contemporary models of capitalism, with a special focus on the structural-, human- and environmental-dimensions of development.

Abstract submission deadline is September 10, 2022.
