The 21 FMM conference of the The Macroeconomic Policy Institute (IMK) will take place in Berlin on 9-11 November 2017.

The market-radical regime of globalisation started to unfold in the 1970s. Since then, integration of financial markets and global value chains have grown to unprecedented levels. Multinational companies and financial institutions have gained substantial power. Globalisation produced winners, but also many losers. Contrary to expectations, many countries have experienced low GDP growth, accompanied by financial booms-bust cycles and high unemployment. Inequality within countries and between developed and poor countries increased, with only a small number of developing countries catching up. Right-wing parties are on the rise and hit long-standing left anti-globalisation movements. All this seems to indicate that the present type of globalisation is economically and politically exhausted. 

The following keynote speakers have already confirmed their participation:

  • Branko Milanovic (City University of New York, US)
  • Jayati Gosh (Jawaharlal Nehru University, IN)
  • Moritz Schularick (University of Bonn, DE)
  • Barbara Fritz (Freie Universität Berlin, DE)
  • Hansjörg Herr (Berlin School of Economics and Law, DE)
  • Bruno Amable (Université de Genève, CH) 

 The submission of papers in the following areas is particularly encouraged:

  • Developments of globalisation over the last 40 years and/or future developments
  • The global financial system
  • Multinational companies, global production networks and domestic policies
  • Globalisation and inequality between and within countries
  • Globalisation and migration
  • Globalisation and functional income distribution
  • Globalisation and ecological challenges

The deadline for paper proposals (abstract of max. 400 words) is 30 June 2017. Proposals for organized sessions with abstracts of three or four papers are welcome and can also be submitted through the web application. Decisions will be made in early August and will be based on clarity, relevance and originality of abstracts outlining the research question, method and (preliminary) results. In case of acceptance, full papers, including an abstract of max. 200 words are due by 15 October 2017.
