Socio-Economics in a Transitioning World: Breaking Lines and Alternative Paradigms for a New World Order

                                                                                    

Conference Theme Overview

En español a continuación

We have observed numerous signs of disruption—at all levels of social relations—of the world built over the past two centuries, in the heat of the industrial revolution and revitalized by successive waves of systemic innovations.

It now seems that some of the engines that have driven this process are breaking down, not only from a conjectural perspective due to the most immediate episodes (pandemic, wars, planetary awareness of global warming, etc.) but also in view of the sustainability of long-term socio-economic development.

In particular, the role of fossil fuels, which have enabled the establishment of the current production and consumption model, threatens the very survival of the planet, and with it its human inhabitants. Beyond millenarian discourses, the energy transition—to leave behind carbon and its destructive effects on the environment that hosts us—is an urgent necessity. The entire fabric that has been built around the carbon energy paradigm is likewise showing signs of stagnation and deterioration.

In their disruption of current models, technological innovation, robotization, and AI may represent an opportunity to move toward this new world order. But the governance of the coming transformations must also lead to the construction of new forms of political organization and new labor scenarios that overcome the ups and downs of volatile and geographically limited democratic systems.

More than three decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, the old Western dream of the urbi et orbi extension of its old democratic formulas of economic and political governance does not seem to have prevailed. Rather, we are besieged by a malaise resulting from the advance of growing authoritarianism, even in the very heart of the oldest democracies. It is not, as in the past, the emergence of fascism or Nazism, strictu sensu, but the expansion of authoritarian expressions of all kinds, with idiosyncratic characteristics, that are permeating institutions in the most varied geographical settings.

These authoritarianisms obstruct the opportunities offered by technological progress for a more inclusive world in all spheres of human life. The counterpoint will have to be new forms of governance in institutions, freeing us from the absolute power of large corporations. Emerging social movements demand forms of democracy that are more participatory than representative, with direct involvement in the collective governance of citizens and their forms of organization in interconnected networks. A new socio-economic paradigm would have to provide answers to this socio-political breaking point.

Demography does not help the matter. We are aware that the production and consumption model—which we have built with greater or lesser success, according to geographical region—and the social and political stabilizer of the Welfare State are suffering from a demographic rupture this century. Increased longevity forces us to rethink this model based on a constantly growing economy in a market framework that drives intense inequalities.

Beyond the hyperglobalization that has been built over recent decades (Rodrik 2022)—with growing economic and social inequalities, and with management concentrated in large corporations and a few political operators—a new international order must respond to the need for higher levels of security and equality for citizens and countries in multiple areas. And this framework of alternative paradigms must also reflect the new economic geography (East-West, North-South) that has changed the world map of international economic relations.

As Diane Coyle points out in her latest work, “we are in a period where there are no clear worldviews to shape policy decisions, and there is a mixture of ideas, both statist and free market, combined with profound voter discontent and loss of trust” (2021:195). In sum, we are immersed in a disoriented society, in which political choice becomes very difficult and confusing, and is expressed through more or less violent protest (Badiou 2021).

Despite neoliberalism’s failure to attain higher levels of growth, prosperity, equity, and freedom, its strange non-death (Crouch 2011) has continued to obstruct the emergence of new socio-economic paradigms. It is necessary to move forward with a new social, economic, and political paradigm that lights new paths for productive organization and the consumption model, and which enables us to maintain a stable balance with the natural world in which we live.

Socio-economics, it should be remembered, is a scientific approach that seeks to build alternative paradigms in the social sciences; thus, in this context, it is a dynamic axis that contributes to the establishment of a new theoretical and methodological horizon in the social sciences. In this perspective, SASE provides a platform for creative empirical and theoretical research on key social problems. We are committed to supporting a diverse international membership which fosters and produces thoughtful yet lively intellectual and interdisciplinary debates.

With regard to these themes, and the more specific areas of the 18 networks that organize the contents of our society, we encourage you to submit your papers and your proposals for mini-conferences at the 35th annual SASE conference, which will be held at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro in July 2023.

We look forward to seeing you at SASE/Rio de Janeiro 2023!

SASE President: Santos Ruesga


Socioeconomía en un mundo en transición: rompiendo líneas y paradigmas alternativos para un nuevo orden mundial

Hemos venido observando numerosos signos de ruptura —en todos los niveles de las relaciones sociales— del mundo construido durante los últimos dos siglos, al calor de la revolución industrial y revitalizado por sucesivas oleadas de innovaciones sistémicas.

Ahora parece que algunos de los motores que han estado impulsando este proceso se están estropeando, no sólo desde una perspectiva coyuntural por los episodios más inmediatos (guerras pandémicas, conciencia planetaria del aumento del calentamiento global, etc.) sino también a la vista de la sostenibilidad del desarrollo socioeconómico a largo plazo.

En particular, el papel de los combustibles fósiles, que han permitido el establecimiento del actual modelo de producción y consumo, amenaza la propia supervivencia del planeta, y con ella de sus habitantes humanos. Más allá de los discursos milenarios, la transición energética —dejar atrás el carbono y sus efectos destructivos sobre el medio ambiente que nos alberga— es una necesidad urgente. Todo el tejido que se ha construido alrededor del paradigma de la energía del carbono también muestra signos de estancamiento y deterioro.

En su disrupción de los modelos actuales, la innovación tecnológica, la robotización y la IA pueden representar una oportunidad para avanzar hacia este nuevo orden mundial. Pero la gobernanza de las transformaciones venideras también debe conducir a la construcción de nuevas formas de organización política y nuevos escenarios laborales que superen los vaivenes de sistemas democráticos volátiles y geográficamente limitados.

Más de tres décadas después de la caída del Muro de Berlín, el viejo sueño occidental de la extensión urbi et orbi de sus viejas fórmulas democráticas de gobernanza económica y política no parece haber prevalecido. Más bien nos asedia un malestar producto del avance de un autoritarismo creciente, incluso en el seno mismo de las democracias más antiguas. No se trata, como en el pasado, del surgimiento del fascismo o del nazismo, strictu sensu, sino de la expansión de expresiones autoritarias de todo tipo, con características idiosincrásicas, que están permeando instituciones en los más variados escenarios geográficos.

Estos autoritarismos obstruyen las oportunidades que ofrece el progreso tecnológico para un mundo más inclusivo en todas las esferas de la vida humana. El contrapunto tendrán que ser nuevas formas de gobierno en las instituciones, liberándonos del poder absoluto de las grandes corporaciones. Los movimientos sociales emergentes demandan formas de democracia más participativas que representativas, con implicación directa en la gobernanza colectiva de los ciudadanos y sus formas de organización en redes interconectadas. Un nuevo paradigma socioeconómico tendría que dar respuestas a este punto de quiebre sociopolítico.

La demografía no ayuda en el asunto. Somos conscientes de que el modelo de producción y consumo -que venimos construyendo con mayor o menor éxito, según la región geográfica- y el estabilizador social y político del Estado del Bienestar, sufren una ruptura demográfica en este siglo. El aumento de la longevidad obliga a repensar este modelo basado en una economía en constante crecimiento en un marco de mercado que impulsa intensas desigualdades.

Más allá de la hiperglobalización que se ha construido en las últimas décadas (Rodrik 2022) —con crecientes desigualdades económicas y sociales, y con la gestión concentrada en grandes corporaciones y unos pocos operadores políticos—, un nuevo orden internacional debe responder a la necesidad de mayores niveles de seguridad y igualdad para ciudadanos y países en múltiples áreas. Y este marco de paradigmas alternativos también debe reflejar la nueva geografía económica (Este-Oeste, Norte-Sur) que ha cambiado el mapa mundial de las relaciones económicas internacionales.

Como señala Diane Coyle en su último trabajo, “estamos en un período en el que no hay visiones del mundo claras para dar forma a las decisiones políticas, y hay una mezcla de ideas, tanto estatistas como de libre mercado, combinadas con un profundo descontento de los votantes y pérdida de confianza. (2021:195). En suma, estamos inmersos en una sociedad desorientada, en la que la elección política se vuelve muy difícil y confusa, y se expresa a través de protestas más o menos violentas (Badiou 2021).

A pesar del fracaso del neoliberalismo en alcanzar niveles más altos de crecimiento, prosperidad, equidad y libertad, su extraña no muerte (Crouch 2011) ha seguido obstruyendo el surgimiento de nuevos paradigmas socioeconómicos. Es necesario avanzar con un nuevo paradigma social, económico y político que ilumine nuevos caminos para la organización productiva y el modelo de consumo, y que nos permita mantener un equilibrio estable con el mundo natural en el que vivimos.

We also recommend simply taking an official taxi from the airport:

You don’t need to book a taxi in advance. When you arrive at the airport, after you pass the passport formalities, you go downstairs to recuperate your luggage. In this hall, you will see a kiosk with the yellow “Taxi comum oficial” logo. You can book your taxi and pay for it directly there – they accept credit cards and cash.  For Copacabana it will be around R$ 120 – fixed price. Once you leave the luggage area, simply show your receipt at the yellow Taxi comum oficial booth, and you will be escorted to a taxi. You do not have to pay anything else after that point, the driver has already received payment.

Virtual option

Virtual sessions

Most Networks and all Mini-Conferences will organize a very limited number of virtual sessions in the week before the Rio conference. These will take place July 11, 12, and 13th (the on-site conference in Rio is 20-22 July 2023). A hybrid conference is not possible, as the wireless network on site cannot support multiple, simultaneous online meetings. Thus, it was decided to offer purely virtual sessions the week before. Participation in these sessions is limited to those individuals who cannot by any means travel to Rio for the on-site conference, and therefore would not have applied for the conference at all otherwise. Most networks will organize two virtual sessions, most mini-conferences only one. 

The following networks will offer virtual sessions: A, B (only pre-formed panels, individual papers will not be considered for network B virtual sessions), D, E, F, G, H, J, L, O, P, Q, R, S.

All mini-conferences plan to organize one virtual session each. 

To apply for virtual participation, follow the prompts in the submission system – when you select a network or mini-conference for your submission, you will be prompted to answer a question about virtual participation (if that network/mini-conference is indeed organizing virtual sessions). Information on submissions is here: Conference Submission – SASE. The hard deadline for submissions is the 1st of February 2023. 

Fees for virtual participation are the same as for on-site participation (the fee schedule can be found by clicking the “Fees” tab above). 

Questions can be addressed to saseexecutive@sase.org.

SASE Early Career Workshop

The SASE Early Career Workshop will be held in 2023 on the 19th of July, on the same site as the SASE conference: at the UFRJ in Rio de Janeiro. 15-20 competitively allocated spots are available for early career researchers – travel and accommodations, as well as SASE registration and membership, are paid for participants in the Workshop.

To apply, follow the prompts in the submission system when applying for participation in the conference (submissions are here).

Socio-economic policies in Latin America: discussing challenges and opportunities

 

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 19th of July 2023

Deadline for submissions: 8 February 2023

The Economics of Innovation, Economic Development and States & Markets working groups of the Young Scholars Initiative of the Institute for New Economic Thinking (YSI/INET) are glad to announce a workshop on Socio-economic policies in Latin America to be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on the 19th of July 2023 at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ).

Background
Over the past decades, Latin America has faced challenges finding a suitable economic and social development strategy. The structural dependency of Latin-American economies on the Global North, its financial subordination in the international financial and monetary system, its peripheral position in global values chains, and political turbulences represent challenges to achieving development. However, the recent economic and environmental crisis, as well as the growing US-China hegemonic competition, has meant new challenges and potential opportunities to the structural conditions faced by Latin America.
Historically, the region has been characterised by its inclination to be used as a laboratory for new economic and political regimes, such as during the Chilean and Argentinian neoliberal and authoritarian regimes in the 1970s or the shock therapy in Bolivia in the 1980s. However, Latin America has also come up with rather indigenous answers to the prevailing status quo in the rest of the world. In the 2000s, the pink tide reverted some of the previous policies implemented in the 1990’s, such as through the re-nationalisation of key industries and public utilities, but also implemented new policies to reduce poverty and income inequality, such as the Bolsa Família in Brazil.
At present, the cyclical political movements within the region have put into power a new wave of governments that share some of the political and economic goals of the earlier pink tide tendency, although with more stringent economic, political and environmental constraints.

Motivation
The goal is to organise a workshop to discuss socio-economic policy challenges and
opportunities from a Latin American perspective in order to propose alternative paradigms.
We focus on research on various topics from heterodox economics approaches including, but not limited to, Structuralist, Marxist, Post-Keynesian, Institutionalist, Evolutionary and Feminist theories. Moreover, we encourage the use of both quantitative and qualitative research methods.

This early career workshop is part of the pre-conference activities for the Society for the
Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) conference, which will be held at the Federal
University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). The YSI early career workshop will also be held at the UFRJ on the 19th of July 2023, and the SASE conference will be held at the same location 20-22 July 2023. The workshop will consist of sessions with presentations by young scholars and feedback from senior scholars, who will act as mentors, and one panel with Latin-American policymakers.

The workshop intends to cover, but is not limited to, the following topics:
• Latin-American socio-economic thought
• Structural change, industrialisation and industrial policy
• Income distribution & taxation
• Financial inclusion & innovation
• Poverty & food insecurity
• Financialisation of social policy & new welfare systems & economy
• Extractivism, green transition & sustainability.

Application process and funding
• Submit an extended abstract of 800-1,000 words
• Deadline for abstract: 1st of February 2023
• Deadline for full papers: 19th of June 2023.
• Abstracts and full papers should be sent in English but we will exceptionally
accept Spanish and Portuguese.
• To submit your application, please, fill out the following form (here).
A selected number of young scholars will receive accommodation and a partial travel
stipend from YSI/INET based on their application and travel requirements. There is no fee to attend the YSI pre-conference. Interested students should have a valid profile at Young Scholars Directory and state in their application their motivation for funding, country of origin and academic status. Our target audience consists of young scholars (Graduate students, PhD candidates, Postdocs) and early career researchers from Latin American countries working on topics related to the Structuralist, Marxist, Post-Keynesian, Institutionalist, Evolutionary and Feminist theories.
We encourage registration and attendance to SASE’s main conference, 20-22 July 2023 at the UFRJ (information on submissions and registration can be found at www.sase.org).
Applicants who would like to attend the SASE conference will have to follow SASE’s
application process – acceptance to the YSI workshop does not mean acceptance to the SASE conference, and vice versa. Having a presentation accepted for the main SASE conference will not be a prerequisite for participation at YSI’s pre-conference event. Unfortunately YSI cannot cover fees for SASE’s conference.

Workshop Venue
The Institute of Economics of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Conference Submission


Below you will find links to submit to the 2023 SASE conference in Rio de Janeiro, 20-22 July 2023. The deadline is 1 February 2023. 

 

SASE accepts 2 types of submissions: abstracts and panels. 

 

SASE is using Oxford Abstracts for its submissions this year, and we would be happy to have your feedback on the new system. Please write to Executive Director Annelies Fryberger (saseexecutive@sase.org) if you have any comments to share. If you already have an Oxford Abstracts account, you can use that for your SASE submission; otherwise, you can easily create one.

There are three possible types of panels you can submit – a pre-formed panel with multiple paper presentations, a roundtable discussion panel, or an Author-Meets-Critics session (see here for some examples of Author-Meets-Critics sessions- these panels include a book author and 3-4 discussants). See below for links to submit these three types of panels:
