Dear EACES members,

 

I am happy to announce that in this issue of the EACES Newsletter you will find the Call for papers for the next, biennial EACES conference, which will be held in Warsaw, Poland, 6-8 September, 2018. The respected Warsaw School of Economics will host the conference. We are happy, that our next biennial conference will take place in this lovely city of special meaning for comparative economists from all over Europe and the world due to its important role during both the planned economy and transition period. And of course, we must note the special importance of Poland in todays’ European and world economics, politics and academia. Our goal is to make this an excellent occasion for scholars and students of comparative economics to meet and discuss various topics related to this research field. New developments in the world economy and in Europe provide ample opportunities to raise and analyse new questions in our research area. While there is a main topic chosen for the Warsaw event, the conference organisers, as always, are open to submissions from related disciplines and to any comparative economics related topic as well. So please do not hesitate to submit your proposals for papers and panels even if they are not linked directly with the main topic of the biennial conference. An important deadline is the 15th of March, 2018, when submissions must reach the organisers through the website of the conference (www.eacesconference.eu). The conference will host a “Meet the editors” session, where representatives of journals dealing with comparative economics issues will be present, including the journal of the association: the European Journal of Comparative Economics. In the meantime, I would like to remind all of you that EACES offers financial means for supporting other events, conferences, workshops as well, which proved to be a very fruitful and successful initiative in the past – and will hopefully remain so in the future.

 

 

Magdolna Sass

EACES President


 

 

1.1 Report of the Leeds Festival


 

The Leeds Festival of Economics, Democracy and the Workplace took place on 4 and 5 May 2017 at Horizon Leeds and was organised by the WPART project (a two-year research project conducted by Dr. Gabriel Burdin and Professor Virginie Pérotin (University of Leeds), and funded by a European Commission Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship).

The festival brought together leading academic scholars, researchers, practitioners, students, and members of the general public interested in different forms of workplace democracy, such as co-operatives, employee-owned firms, worker directors and other employee voice mechanisms. Some 70 delegates from the UK, Europe (Belgium, Cyprus, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, and Spain) and the US participated in the event.

The event received support from the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies and other institutions, such as the Marie Skłodowska-Curie scheme, the Society for the Advancement of Management Studies, and the Royal Economic Society.

The list of papers presented at the academic workshop can be found here. A brief summary of the main discussions and keynotes can be found here.

3. CALL FOR PAPERS

 

3.1 EACES 15th Biennial Conference

 

15th European Association for Comparative Economic Studies Conference

Warsaw, Poland 6-8 September 2018

 

The 15thBiannual Conference of EACES will be held in Warsaw, Poland, on 6-8 September 2018, hosted by the Warsaw School of Economics (Szkoła Główna Handlowa). To guide prospective authors and participants, the conference theme is:

“Post-Transition and Emerging Economies ten years after the Financial Crisis: Policies, Response, Performance and Challenges”

 

The impact of the Financial Crisis and Great Recession on post-transition and emerging economies has varied tremendously. Some economies experienced very large recessionary shocks with long-lasting effects for the labour market, human capital formation and growth. For others policy and economic structure alleviated potential negative effects. Importantly for some countries, the Great Recession also slowed or postponed systemic reform efforts. Understanding the differential impact and means of diffusing the negative consequences is important for scholars and policy makers. Hence, it strikes us as important to take stock of the performance and policy reactions of post-transition and emerging economies, broadly defined, nearly ten years after the Great Recession. Additionally, challenges to globalization and the environment remain while new challenges to international economic and security institutions arise.  A comparative perspective is essential to understand how workers, firms and governments adjusted to the economic shocks that occurred, challenges that remain and new challenges that lie ahead.  A systemic approach provides essential perspective as individual economies had made varying degrees of progress in the transition process and will be differentially affected by challenges on the horizon.

 

The scientific committee invites proposals for papers (abstracts up to 250 words) and panels (session topic and abstracts for 3-5 papers), reflecting current and ongoing research on any facet of the broad theme above. However, topics of inquiry and presentations at the conference will not be limited, and we encourage proposals for papers and panels of papers on any theme of comparative economics including socio-economic, sociological, historical and political topics. Therefore work from cognate disciplines and methods are also welcome. Proposals can be uploaded via our conference website www.eacesconference.eu. The deadline for abstract and panel submission is 15th of March, 2018.

 

Confirmed plenary speakers include Professor Stanisław Gomułka, for many years Reader of Economics at the London School of Economics, one of the most accomplished consultants to various Polish post-Communist governments, and leading the effort to design a coherent reform policy after the collapse of Communism.  Professor Domenico Mario Nuti is among the leading researchers of comparative economics, at present professor emeritus at the University of Rome “La Sapienza”. He was advisor to various international organizations and governments in the East Central and Eastern European region and is the author of numerous publications on comparative economic systems.

 

The conference will host a “Meet the editors” session, where representatives of journals dealing with comparative economics issues will be present, including the journal of the association: European Journal of Comparative Economics.

 

 

 

 

3.2 Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe

 

The Joint IOS/APB/EACES Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe

 

The Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe was established by the Leibniz Institute for East and Southeast European Studies (IOS Regensburg) in 2009, to bring together mainly Ph.D. students and Postdocs in a workshop atmosphere. Since 2011, EACES has joined in the organization of the Summer Academy. Over these past years, the Summer Academy on Central and Eastern Europe has developed into a prime early career event within comparative economics, arguably outstanding among those under the auspices of EACES.

Editorial:

 

This 84th issue of the EACES newsletter begins with presidential message orients the readers to the Call for papers for the next biennial EACES conference that will be held in Warsaw, Poland, 6-8 September, 2018. The cherished Warsaw School of Economics is hosting the conference. EACES members have the opportunity of visiting this lovely city of special importance for comparative economists from all over Europe and the world due to its unique role during both the planned economy and transition economy. The significance has spread in European and world economics, politics and academia. Scholars and students of comparative economics will enjoy the special occasion to meet and discuss various topics on the economics of transition, new developments in the world economy and in Europe. Furthermore, the conference organisers, as always, are open to submissions from related disciplines and to any dimension of comparative economics. Therefore, scholars will submit their proposals for papers and panels even if they are not linked directly with the main topic of the biennial conference. The deadline for proposal/abstract submission is the 15th of March, 2018; the submissions are suggested through the website of the conference (www.eacesconference.eu). This conference website will timely keep on updating the information regarding the conference.
