Transnational Capitalism Workshop, 27-28 May
2nd Graduate Student Workshop on Transnational Capitalism
Budapest, Central European University, 27-28 May, 2010
The workshop aims at fostering the exchange of expertise and provides a networking opportunity for PhD students and faculty working in the field of Political Economy. The first workshop was organised in May 2009 at EUI, Florence, and it brought together students and faculty from Central European University, Budapest, the European University Institute, Florence, and Max Planck Institute for Social Sciences, Köln. In view of the success of this event, we decided to continue the cooperation and turn the Graduate Student Workshop on Transnationalizing Capitalism into an annual event. This year, we extended the invitation also to the participants from London School of Economics and Political Science and University of Oxford.
The event deals with the issues of transnational capitalism, and the way it impacts the reconfiguration of strategies of the nation states, national institutions, local governments, workers and firms. The aim of the workshop is to offer various angles for exploring the processes, institutions, actors and outcomes of economic and political transnationalization.
You can find the preliminary programme for this year's workshop here. Below is the list of papers and participants:
Sven Steinmo, EUI. Do Institutions Really Evolve?
Marek Naczyk, University of Oxford. Political Conflict and Regulatory Reform: Polish Pension Funds during the Financial Crisis
