EAEPE Young Scholars Pre-Conference 2017

29th Annual Conference of the European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy
Budapest, Hungary: 19-21 October 2017
Pre-Conference: 18-19 October 2017

The European Association for Evolutionary Political Economy (EAEPE) welcomes young scholars of all levels (students – early Post-Docs) who are involved in or want to learn more about pluralist, heterodox, real world-oriented, and/or interdisciplinary research. Young scholars are invited to submit papers for presentation at the annual meeting, but could also participate with own paper presentations. In addition, we invite interested students and young researchers to join us for the Young Scholars Pre-Conference.

Young Scholars Pre-Conference

Prior to the annual EAEPE conference in Budapest in October 2017, young researchers and students are welcome to attend seminars and workshops in a series of pre conference workshops. The workshops  will last between three and six hours and will be held over a period of two half days. Participants will be assigned a few reading materials prior to the pre-conference to facilitate the workshops and to help sustain the  network.

The promotion of young researchers in the arena of critical pluralistic, non-orthodox and interdisciplinary research in today’s world is of prominent importance. As teaching and research outside ‘mainstream’ economics continues to be exceptional in most European countries, it remains important for us to organize and promote such seminars, workshops, and coordinated trainings. EAEPE as a longstanding pluralist association and a prominent actor in this field is thus an excellent support institution for young scholars in order to promote new economic thinking.

Pre-Conference Keynote Lecture on Wednesday, Oct 18, 12pm

Wilfred Dolfsma (Glendonbrook Institute for Enterprise Development, Loughborough University, London):

Government Failure: Institutions and Development

Workshops and Lecturers at the Pre-Conference, Wednesday, 18 October (afternoon) & Thursday, 19 October (morning)

Catherine Laurent (National Institute of Agricultural Research): Pluralism and Inter-Disciplinarity

Alessandro Caiani (Marche Polytechnic University): Agent-Based Stock Flow Consistent Modelling

Rainer Kattel (Tallinn University of Technology): Development Economics

Rinus Penninx (University of Amsterdam): The Migrant Question in Europe

Andrea Petö (Central European University): Feminist Economics


Government Failure: Institutions for Development by Wilfred Dolfsma (Loughborough University London)

Institutions are important for (economic) development, and government is responsible for setting many of them. In setting formal institutions relevant for economic activities, a government can fail - and this will be explained. In addition, however, a government can set formal institutions that aim at other domains that inadvertently impact the economy in a negative manner. What is more, informal institutions impact the economy as well.


Pluralism and inter-disciplinarity by Catherine Laurent (French National Institute for Agronomic Research)

A convergent set of observations demonstrates the difficulties met by scientists to produce interdisciplinary knowledge adequate to answer -at the relevant scales- the questions raised by sustainable development. On the other hand, recent advances regarding the plurality of science (e.g. Cartwright 1999, Keller et al 2006) have shown that all disciplines include different theoretical approaches. An explicit recognition of the plurality of theoretical approaches within each discipline (economics, ecology, sociology…) changes the way to consider interdisciplinarity. It may allow the scientists to better control the conceptual implications of their collaborations across disciplines and the policy makers to better understand the specific blind spots associated with each theoretical approach and its results. The presentation will illustrate the stakes of this debate. It will be based on the case of the collaboration between ecology and economics. It will include a short review of the ways to define the notions of “discipline” and “interdiscipline”, an insight into the plurality of theoretical approaches within ecology and economics, and a discussion of the consequences of this pluralism for the collaboration between scientists and for policy making.

Agent Based-Stock Flow Consistent Modelling by Alessandro Caiani (Marche Polytechnic University)

The workshop aims at introducing students to the logic, methodology, and practice of Agent Based-Stock Flow Consistent macroeconomic modelling. We will first discuss the main features, advantages, and limitations of the two methodologies taken in isolation, and the possible synergies arising from their combination. A brief overview of the main contributions in the nascent AB-SFC literature will then serve to introduce the logic of AB-SFC modeling, and the challenges ahead. The second part of the workshop will be practice-oriented, being geared around the live construction of a simplified AB-SFC model. Through this laboratory students will start to learn how to design, develop, analyse, and display these models using R, an open source programming language and data-analysis software

Development Economics by Rainer Kattel, (Tallinn University of Technology)

The workshop is centred over ‘high development theory’ and classical development economists, P. Rosenstein-Rodin, A. Hirschman, R. Nurkse, G Myrdal, H. Singer, R. Prebish, and their intellectual legacy in development economics. Whether or not these ideas were translated into respective policy decisions, either successfully or not, will be also part of the discussion in relation to the role of technological change in economic development, financing of development, terms of trade, patterns of economic growth and the role of state therein. The workshop will also touch upon contemporary relevance of classical development theories in regards to developing and emerging economies as well as issues of economic integration.

Long Story Short: The Migrant Question in Europe by Rinus Penninx, (University of Amsterdam)

This workshop will provide participants with a historical, comparative, and analytical understanding of migration and integration in Europe, and of the core questions that are frequently asked today. A range of topics are presented in three sub-sessions, each of which will last an hour:

  • Post-war migration and migration regimes in Europe, 
  • Conceptualizing integration and analyzing integration policies, 
  • Migrant workers in Europe and the role that trade unions play in their integration. 

Feminist Economics by Andrea Petö (Central European University)

The workshop offers hands on exercises using qualitative and quantitative methods how to spot what gender does in social relations. It starts with a short introduction to different gender studies methodologies and continues with analysis of examples. Participants are encouraged to bring their own puzzling excerpts/data/examples for the workshop.
