Call for Papers AFEE @ EAEPE 2017

29th Annual EAEPE Conference at Corvinus University of Budapest, 19-21 October 2017

Theme: “The Global Crisis of Youth Unemployment: Causes, Consequences and Policies. Evolutionary-Institutional and Political-Economic Perspectives”.

The aim is to address the serious global problem of youth unemployment. Policies for recovery and development have usually focused on minimizing financial risks and increasing competitiveness. However, few policies have put young people at the heart of development. Thus they fail to grasp the deep causes and sweeping impact of youth unemployment, which has dramatically increased across countries in the post-crisis era. Rising unemployment among young people can have serious consequences for individual and collective wellbeing, leading to further economic slowdown, social unrest and political instability. It is thus imperative to join forces to raise awareness about the problem and discuss the possible ways of solving it by introducing new policies and institutions.

We invite contributions that talk about conditions of and policies for youth unemployment. We welcome works that derive from various social science disciplines and use different units of analysis (individual, regional, country or cross-country level), methodologies and techniques (theoretical, empirical, qualitative and quantitative). Finally, we invite evolutionary, institutionalist, and political-economic perspectives on the problem.

Since 2012, EAEPE has organized joint sessions with AFEE. The goal is to promote scientific and scholarly collaboration between the two sister organizations. Due to its continuous success a permanent Research Area for has been implemented for these joint sessions.

Submission deadline is 15 May 2017.
