Call # 4 - States and Markets


Pluralism in practice: the challenge of “doing” pluralist economics”.

In February in Duisburg, the States and Markets working group explored the theoretical underpinnings of pluralist economics in an attempt to deal with some of the “big questions” in economics. In Siena this June, we want to turn our focus to the practical and spend time discussing what it actually looks like to “do” pluralist economics. How do you teach it? How do you use it in your research? How does it affect the way you communicate about economics with the public?

To facilitate this discussion, we want to encourage “heterodox” presentation methods. Taking inspiration from this summer’s upcoming “Trento with a Twist”, we specifically encourage proposals which:

  • attach an individual’s work to the ‘big picture’ or challenges facing society
  • connect research interests amongst participants
  • deepen the working group involvement of participants (e.g. through projects).

To apply, please send a short (~300 word) summary of the topic you would like to discuss, and a short proposal for the presentation format you would like to use via the link below.

See you in Siena!
