Understanding the Changing Worlds of Capitalism

New Perspectives on the Political Economy of Work, Production and Employment Regimes

Renehan Hall, NUI Maynooth 09:15 :: 1st May 2013

The various forms of capitalism are in crisis, as are the theories that have dominated our understandings of capitalism in recent decades. This conference draws together leading international scholars to examine changing European capitalisms, with a particular focus on how the organisation of work, employment and production regimes is changing. We explore how theories must shift to account for changing capitalisms.
Speakers include Dorothee Bohle, Bernhard Ebbinghaus, Béla Greskovits, Peer Hull Kristensen, Lars Mjoset, Luis Ortiz, Karen Shire and Markus Tünte.
The conference explores a variety of theories of political economy (e.g. Polanyian, institutionalist, pragmatist); different forms of capitalism in Europe (liberal, Christian democratic, social democratic, post-socialist, Mediterranean); and various institutions shaping work (e.g. welfare regimes, industrial relations, family, transnational work and technological change).
