“The Chronicles of Multiple Crises Foretold”
12th Annual Conference of the International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy
September 6-8, 2023 / Universidad Rey Juan Carlos, Madrid, Spain
Following the Global Financial Crisis and the ongoing covid pandemic, alongside the chronic, if intensifying, impacts of environmental degradation and global conflicts, burdens of adjustment are increasingly being consolidated and/or shifted upon those who are already worst placed to live let alone survive the volatilities that have derived from the unprecedentedly inegalitarian tendencies attached to contemporary capitalism. Such developments have been complemented by corresponding vulnerabilities and oppressions, especially where deriving from authoritarian populism, in political and cultural spheres, the severities of which have been disproportionately experienced on the basis of nationality, race, gender, disability and sexual orientation.
How are we to understand these unprecedented trajectories in contemporary capitalism, both in broad analytical and historical terms, and in the details of specific crises, contexts and struggles? How are these crises being interpreted by mainstream scholarship and policymakers, and what are the alternatives grounded in alternative framings with the motivation of building movements to bring about both short-term mitigation and secure long-term responses to neoliberalism’s multiple dysfunctions, inequities and iniquities?
IIPPE calls for submissions to its 2023 annual conference. We particularly welcome papers directly related to the core themes of this year’s conference, and as always, presentations on all aspects of political economy are also welcome. New participants committed to political economy, interdisciplinarity, history of economic thought, pluralism in economic and social thinking, and/or their application to policy analysis and activism are strongly encouraged to submit an abstract.
The deadline for proposals’ submission is 15 March 2023.

As usual, there will be a pre-conference IIPPE training workshop event on 5 September 2023.
