CALL FOR PAPERS (downloadable here)
The annual conference of the Association Française pour l’Economie Politique/French Association for Political Economy is a generalist conference that brings together a range of different approaches to economics and seeks to be a sounding board for those seeking to defend the need for pluralism of concepts, ideas and theoretical tools in economics. AFEP also aims to encourage interdisciplinary collaboration in the social sciences around economic issues.
Some 200 delegates who set great store by pluralistic debate around themes in political economy and socio-economics attend the AFEP conference every year
Accordingly, it is expected that a large number of papers addressing (but not necessarily confined to) the following themes will be submitted :
Submissions from social scientists other than economists (economic sociologists, management specialists, economic anthropologists, economic historians) and dealing with economic issues will be welcomed.
The AFEP Conference 2017 will be structured around a central theme:
Towards the disintegration of Europe ?
Contemplating Europe’s future
Projects aimed in particular at reducing inequalities between countries and - to compensate for the absence of that adjustment mechanism within the eurozone – between regions are certainly being funded from the European budget. However, the funding is not in any way equal to the task nor, more generally, is it sufficient to provide effective support for innovation and nonprice competitiveness policy. All these points raise institutional questions and it would therefore seem essential to a pertinent analysis of issues in political economy to have fresh light shed on them from the perspective of public law and political science.
