Research Area [JAES] Joint AFEE-EAEPE Sessions

“Complexity Economics and Meso-economics:
Addressing the Exigencies and Contradictions of Today's Complex World”

The European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE) will be hosting a conference in Nice, France, 6-8 September 2018.

This year the 30th Annual EAEPE 2018 Conference will consider existing evolutionary theories, new developments in the field and the potential for putting theory into practice to cope with the complexity of the real world.

The EAEPE organizes joint sessions together with the Association for Evolutionary Economics (AFEE) since 2012. The goal is to promote scientific and scholarly collaboration between the two sister organizations. Due to its continuous success a permanent Research Area has been implemented for these joint sessions.

The topic of this year’s [JAES] Joint AFEE-EAEPE Sessions is: “Complexity Economics and Meso-economics: Addressing the Exigencies and Contradictions of Today's Complex World”. It focuses on developing a systemic approach to heterodox economic research. The aim is to identify the complex structure of an economy as an evolving and socially-constructed system and to promote methodological advances and new improved methods to generate critical insights into previously unexplored phenomena.

Scholars from around the globe with expertise in the field of complexity theory and institutionalist economics will be taking part in these sessions. Prof. Phil O’Hara (Global Political Economy Research Unit, Bentley, Australia) is the invited speaker of the joint sessions and will present a talk on the application of principles of institutional political economy to complexity, and the performance-based institutional dynamics of capitalism.

Note that the submission deadline for an abstract is 31 March 2018. Please submit your abstract here and choose [JAES] Joint AFEE-EAEPE Sessions:
