The 4th Conference in cooperation with the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies
20-21 May 2021
Global economy has been going through severe changes in several dimensions recently. The long-term impacts of the corona virus pandemic and the ongoing technological innovations, the 4th industrial revolution may rearrange trade relationships and global value chains both inside and outside the European Union and may as well modify the role of the state. Signs of this process are already present in the Central and Eastern European countries. The perspectives of a US-China trade war alter from day to day. Due to growing awareness of climate change, the pressure on industry has increased - especially on automotive sector - to reduce environmental damages unexpectedly fast. The new situation requires new answers in the various fields of policies. The European integration has to respond to challenges after Brexit and before the long-delayed Western Balkan enlargement.
We call for papers that address the reshaping global economic landscape from the viewpoint of European integration and economies in the following topics:
Papers based on the approach of either economics, political economy or business studies are welcome.
Papers and panel proposals can be submitted.
The Conference provides a separate session for PhD students.
Selected papers will be published after peer review process in an online proceeding with an ISBN number.
