POLITSCI '14 / Call for Papers

Political Science in Contemporary World: Neoliberalism, Crises and Social Resistance Movements

Theorizing and Experiencing Politics


The main objective of the Political Science Conference is to provide a platform for academic discussions on politics by taking into account both "theory" and "praxis". This year's conference will focus primarily on neoliberalism and its impact on various aspects of the social body: forms of state, social classes, accumulation and political regimes,

Framework of the Conference

After the financial crisis and the great recession that started in the US in 2007 to become subsequently global and the Eurozone crisis, there emerged a debate as to the fate of neoliberal agenda and its ability to provide solutions to the crisis tendencies of capitalism. Governments were providing emergency bailouts to the banking sector and significant stimulus packages to others. Therefore, it was thought that the free market doctrine and its components of deregulation and austerity have approached to an end. Commentators such as Naomi Klein, Joseph Stiglitz and Eric Hobsbawn argued that there were similarities between the financial crash and the fall of the Berlin Wall. However, ensuing developments showed that rather than leading to the dismantling of the neoliberal structuring, the crises have provided another stimulus for a neoliberal re-structuring. Neoliberalism seems to be more resilient than it was thought to be.
