IIPPE’s 7th Annual Conference in Political Economy, Lisbon, Portugal 7-9 September

IIPPE International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy


IIPPE’s 7th Annual Conference in Political Economy is nearing. It will be held at the School of Economics & Management (Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão, ISEG) in Lisbon, Portugal from the 7th till the 9th of September.

The broad theme of the 7th Conference is ‘Political Economy: International Trends and National Differences’. The economic crisis that has been unfolding since 2007 has had a severely asymmetric impact both within and between countries. The main schools of political economy have examined the crisis and its implications in detail. Those studies have offered valuable insights supporting further academic analyses and, most importantly, informing political action. The Seventh Annual Conference in Political Economy will review the development of political economy in response to the crisis, and the emergence and renewal of political economy in different countries and regions.

The Conference’s Venue is the School of Economics & Management (Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão, ISEG) in Lisbon, Portugal. To see its exact location in Lisbon, just type ‘ISEG, Lisbon’ into Google Maps. The ISGE complex is essentially three connected buildings, and signs will indicate the registration room when you arrive.
