Call for papers

The International Confederation of Associations for Pluralism in Economics (ICAPE) announces its 3rd International Conference:

“Failing Economies, Failing Economics: Rebooting Economics after the Crash”

3-5 June 2010

Western New England College, Springfield, Massachusetts

ICAPE and the organizers of “Failing Economies, Failing Economics: Rebooting Economics after the crash” invite proposals for papers that discuss or demonstrate the value of economic pluralism in the light of the recent global economic crisis.

ICAPE wishes to invite papers on all aspects related to the financial and economic crisis, including:

  • The crisis and aspects of policy making;
  • The impact of the crisis on the developed and the developing world;
  • The economic crisis and the impact upon the economics profession;
  • The economic crisis and the teaching of economics.

Papers are invited from all domains of pluralism: economic theory and philosophy, economic institutions and policies, or economic education. More specifically, we suggest the following themes:

  • Pluralism developments in heterodox economic theory;
  • Neoliberalism and pluralism in economics;
  • Pluralism and the science of economics.

Themed sessions are also welcomed.

Panels will be organized around thematic topics, with an eye to encouraging dialogue among authors whose papers address similar issues from different points of view. In this fashion, we hope to promote critical engagement and mutual learning among conference participants.
