Challenges in national and international economic policies

3rd Central European PhD Workshop on Economic Policy and Crisis Management
Doctoral School in Economics, University of Szeged
13rd-14th April 2018, Szeged, Hungary

Our workshop targets these issues and is open to all PhD students from Central European doctoral schools, working in the fields of economic policy and crisis management. The workshop is held in parallel with the international workshop ‘Renewal of the European economic integration concept’ organised by the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the University of Szeged, and supported by the European Association for Comparative Economic Studies (EACES). Plenary sessions of the two workshops are held jointly and further cooperation among the two groups of participants will be realised. This offers PhD students a special training and provides an opportunity for interaction amongst senior and young researchers.

We invite papers that aim at a better understanding of the challenges in national and international economic policies, in particularly (but not restricted to) the following fields:

  • European integration,
  • lessons from crisis management strategies (comparative studies are especially welcome),
  • monetary policy entering a new era(?),
  • fiscal policy,
  • competition regulation,
  • changing role of the state.

European Economic Integration Theory Revisited

European integration is facing the most severe challenges since the signature of the Rome Treaty, the 60th anniversary of which will be celebrated in 2017. In these turbulent times we must remember that for six decades European integration has provided the conditions of a peaceful development for the continent and has served as a model for many regional organizations in other continents.

We call for papers which address the unanswered questions of European economic integration theories – without taboos but using the analytical tools of either economics or political economy with academic rigour.
