IIPPE calls for general submissions for the Conference, and particularly welcomes those on its core themes the state of capitalism and the state of political economy, which will be the focus for the plenary sessions.

2nd International Conference in Contemporary Social Sciences – Call for Papers


Public Policy at the Crossroads: Social Sciences Leading the Way?

Rethymno, 14-16 June 2018

Call for Papers

In contemporary societies social science is oftentimes interlaced into public policy. Yet, informing public policy with social science research is a complex process which manifests power relations. Whether we refer to the local, regional, national or transnational level, designing public policy remains a convoluted and intricate series of actions and dynamics. Especially in the framework of the current globalised economy and the recent global economic crisis, developing and establishing public policy is undoubtedly affected by a multitude of factors. As such, the systematic study of public policy in its diverse aspects represents a challenge for the Social Sciences. Public policy analysis needs to critically reflect on its own role in (de)legitimising policies and also of its usage from state agents or public authorities. There is no doubt that these issues require interdisciplinary methods and approaches that trespass the borders of any individual social discipline. Only through an open and dynamic dialogue between the various fields that constitute social science and beyond it will it be possible to effectively address the crucial issues that relate to the development and implementation of public policy in our days.

Το 5ο Συνέδριο έχει ως θέμα «ΘΕΣΜΟΙ ΚΑΙ ΑΝΑΠΤΥΞΗ». Η πρόσφατη παγκόσμια κρίση αλλά και η κρίση στην Ευρωζώνη έδειξαν ότι η οικονομική ανάπτυξη είναι ένας συνδυασμός κοινωνικών παραγόντων που υπερβαίνουν τις αυστηρά οικονομικές προϋποθέσεις και δυνατότητες κάθε χώρας. Πρόσφατες μελέτες και έρευνες έχουν προβάλλει το ρόλο των επίσημων και ανεπίσημων θεσμών στην αποτελεσματική λειτουργία της οικονομίας μακροχρόνια. Οι άξονες που αποτελούν την κύρια θεματική εστίαση του συνεδρίου και γύρω από τους οποίους θα περιστραφούν οι εργασίες του είναι: Συνέχεια

Reconstruction of Production in Greece: study the past, plan for the future – Call for Papers

The problem of restructuring production in Greece becomes increasingly urgent. Nevertheless, recent relevant studies fall significantly shorter compared to those scientific analyses and the resulting proposals that took place during the first post-war decade. This indicates anything but a momentum for overcoming the impasses of modern Greek society and economy.

We believe that we have much to learn from those pioneering scientific studies and, thereby, to design updated and safe policies for facing the extremely critical period we live in. Moreover, we think that, taking into account the newest theoretical information and empirical data, we should contribute to the opening of a public, scientifically documented, discussion for the reconstruction of production in our country and for the respective institutional changes that will strengthen it.
