This is a quick ‘save the date’ announcement. We have finalised the date and venue for the next Critical Political Economy Research Network conference. It will take place on Thursday 20 – Friday 21 September at Universitat Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona. The local organiser is Mònica Clua-Losada, Visiting Professor in Public and Social Policy in theDepartment of Political and Social Sciences and also the Secretary on the board of this network. As indicated in September, the theme will revolve around the ‘critical’ in ‘critical political economy’, which will encompass both conceptual reflection on the purpose of critical research, the concrete themes and topics that critical research should be addressing at the moment (labour, immigration, capitalism ‘moving East’, etc.), and the purpose of critical research in terms of its impact on policies, social struggles, etc.
We will circulate a Call for Papers in the coming weeks!
