Dear AfeeFolks,

In addition to a rich conference, ICAPE is also partnering with the Young
Scholar's Initiative of INET to offer a series of workshops at the ICAPE
conference Jan. 3, 2019 at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta. I would
encourage young scholars to apply. Lodging and travel grants are available.

I hope to see everyone in Atlanta.

Long Term Impacts of the Global Financial Crisis: Ten Years After the
Beginning of the EndYoung Scholars Initiative (YSI) ASSA Pre-Conference
Workshop at the Annual Conference of the International Confederation of
Associations for Pluralism in Economics (ICAPE) Atlanta, Georgia, January
3, 2019.

The global financial crisis of 2008 was a transformative event not only in
the world economy, but also in the world of economic policy.  Facing this
apparently unprecedented crisis, governments had to innovate their policy
responses to contain it. But the long-term consequences of these policies
were often overlooked or only a secondary concern. Ten years after the
crisis, we can look back retrospectively to examine its impact on economic
policy thinking and the economies themselves, and decipher what can be
learned about policy design, policy choices and the impact on societies
around the world

This YSI ASSA pre-conference workshop will explore the long-term impact of
the global financial crisis from various perspectives.  It aims to bring
together young researchers and senior experts working on issues of
Financial Stability, Economic Development, Innovation, Inequality and
Economic History. It will serve as a forum for the exchange of ideas,
research agendas, and networking at one of the biggest gathering of
pluralist economics associations (ICAPE), on the eve of the largest
congregation of economists, the Annual Meeting of the Allied Social Science
Association (ASSA). To facilitate this, we encourage young academic
researchers as well as researchers working in relevant policy organizations
to apply.

The workshop seeks to explore/examine how the global financial crisis of
2008 and the policy responses to it have affected the global economy


   Has it permanently changed the way policy is formed and how the economy
   works? How has it affected the policy-making apparatus and decision-making?
   Have the changes, been significant or superficial? Have there been
   unintended consequences? Have any changes already been undone?

   Did the crisis impact economies in the Global North and South
   differently, and if yes, how so? Has the global policy response taken the
   particularities of developing countries into account, and if so, how? To
   what extent did the crisis lead to an opening up of policy space for
   developing economies, for example through the G20, and what impact has this
   had on policy-making globally?

   Does the policy response to the crisis facilitates the creation of a
   just economy and society? Or are there new constraints that stand in the
   way of domestic policies being effectively designed and implemented?

The pre-conference will consist of 4 thematic workshops (1.5 hrs each) and
a social event on January 3, 2019. The themes of the workshops will be:

Workshop I: Reform of the Global Finance and Economic System after the

Workshop II: The Impacts of the Great Recession on Income Distribution and
the Potential Limits of Policy Responses

Workshop III: Globalization, Financialization, and Innovation

Workshop IV: Innovations in Policy


Admission is on the basis of a motivation letter (300 words) and a
curriculum vitae. Your letter of motivation should mention why your
research or work is related to the theme of the workshop and how you will
benefit from it.

Accommodation will be provided for all successful applicants. Limited
travel stipends are also available.

We encourage applications from young scholars  who are already planning to
attend ICAPE/ASSA. Kindly note that admission to the pre-conference does
not extend towards admission to the ASSA conference, i.e. if pre-conference
participants who would like to attend the main conference will need to

receiving MA or PhD degree or an equivalent; for applicants working in
public sector organizations – no more than 7 years should pass since
receiving a university diploma (either BA or MA or PhD or an equivalent).
