4th International Degrowth Conference, Leipzig Sept 2-6 2014

The International Degrowth Conference has reached its fourth venue: since Paris 2008 the debate on how to move away from a growth-oriented economy towards a more sustainable society has drawn world-wide attention. The fourth international conference will take place in a country that is considered as the European engine of economic growth. Different traditions of growth critique, such as the concept of a post-growth society stemming from the German-speaking community and the French and Southern European degrowth debate, are invited to a fruitful dialogue. The conference seeks to bring practitioners, activists and scientists together and encompasses various formats for presentations, interaction, workshops, and exchange.

"Social economy on the move...at the crossroads of structural change and regulation", 4th CIRIEC International Research Conference, 24-26 Oct, Antwerp (Belgium), Call for papers until 21th April

For some centuries, in the North as well in the South, social economy has unfolded in various forms. The institutions of the social economy (cooperatives, mutuals, nonprofit organizations, etc.) have experienced periods of growth and recession, of both success and failure, in the supporting, complementing and/or counteracting roles in relation to the dominant economic model in place. This 4th CIRIEC International Research Conference on the Social Economy aims in particular at discussing the place of social economy in modern society and its current role when facing potentially heavy structural transformations and new regulatory frameworks. Thanks to the more or less permanent dynamic features of this field in society, social economy initiatives and enterprises foster bottom up changes which in turn favour structural changes and in many cases are the agents of change in regulation. This includes for example regulation centred on non-market values, cooperative regulation, next to administrative and competitive regulation.

"Cooperatives during crisis and post-crisis period", ICA Global Research Conference June 12-15th 2013, Nicosia, Cyprus, call for papers until 15th january

The ICA global conference for 2013 hosted at the European University of Cyprus aims to bring together the academia and industry in the crucial sector of cooperatives and social economy. We are now in a long period of crisis, financial crisis at the beginning, but economic and social crisis thereafter. This crisis has several aspects and consequences, such as failure of enterprises, unemployment, even risk of failure for countries. We need to examine, therefore, the consequences for the cooperative and social economy entities; how they have behaved so far, which changes took place, and how they will emerge from the crisis.
