I've been asked to share the following by the Progressive Economy Academics' Network:
Within the framework of its next Annual Forum meeting (5 to 8 March 2014) to be held in Brussels, Progressive Economy will host an Academic Conference from 5 to 6 March.
Interested researchers are invited to submit an abstract of their paper in English by 25th of November 2013, using the online procedure on our website.
Researchers whose abstract will have been selected by the Scientific Board will be informed by 16 December 2013. They will then be requested to submit their full paper by 24th of February 2014 and will be invited to attend the Academic Conference at the organiser's expense in order to present this contribution.
The Scientific Board will subsequently select a total of six best papers, to be announced during a special session at the Annual Forum on 7 March 2014.
The four research topics are:
- Inequality and the crisis;
- Alternatives to austerity;
- Reforming European economic governance;
- Rethinking economic policy.
The Progressive Economy Academics' Network, or PEAC, is a major project within the Progressive Economy initiative. The quality and academic relevance of the project is secured through its Scientific Board, composed of leading European and international academics from the economic and social research fields. The aim of PEAC is to foster theoretical and empirical research on economic and social issues, and to facilitate the transmission of this research into progressive politics, with a particular focus on European economic and social challenges. Besides the annual call for papers, this also includes research funding across the initiative's policy issues; the publication and dissemination of academic contributions through the Journal for a Progressive Economy; a programme of academic seminars; and an online membership-based networking platform. Within PEAC, the PEAC Future project encourages and supports research work from young academics of up to 35 years of age.
