The 2024 Conference Theme

Paved by multiple crises and unexpected shocks, the global economic and business environment has undergone substantial transformations during the past decades, resulting in new policy challenges from the global to the national and regional levels. Actors are more vulnerable and face greater pressure to adapt and improve their resilience. A shifting environment also challenges core principles and values that have long been universally accepted and guided economic policies in recent decades. Novel ideas to interpret ongoing changes is urgently needed to effectively address newly arising challenges that (re-)entered the agenda of academic and policy debates. This led to the renewed interest in analysing the role of the state in supporting the green transition, structural change, as well as increasing the economic and social resilience of national economies in times of crises.

The conference will contribute to theoretical debates and enrich empirical analysis in comparative and international political economy research, with a special focus on the structural, human, and environmental dimensions of development.

The aim of the 10th SVOC International Conference is to invite scholars presenting novel theoretical and empirical analyses on the structural transformations of economies and their broader implications. We particularly encourage that scholars submit research papers that are geared to different levels of analysis, namely, the global, national, regional, or sectoral.

We welcome inquiries that provide a more nuanced understanding of structural change, green transitions, as well as other dimensions of inclusive and sustainable development. In addition to welcoming papers on these topics, we encourage interested researchers to submit papers especially (but not exclusively) on the following topics:

 

A. Cutting edge debates in research on comparative capitalism

B. Contemporary varieties of state capitalism (case studies and comparative analyses)

C. New industrial policies in the twenty-first century (green and techno-nationalist industrial policies)

D. Structural transformation in more and less developed economies: the role of knowledge- and innovation-intensive sectors

E. Post-crisis models of sustainable development

F. Various aspects of the green transition

G. Empirical evidence on tendencies affected global value chains: disruptions, re-, near-, friend-shoring (?)

H. De-globalization, slowbalization, degrowth perspectives

I. The circular economy

 

Abstracts (max. 300 words) are welcome until 20 July 2024 through using the provided template. Please, send the abstract to svoc@krtk.hun-ren.hu. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by the 1th of August.
