Political tensions associated with rising inequality, geopolitical rivalries weakening the multilateral system, financial instability, environmental issues, and persistent technological and productive asymmetries among developing and developed countries, are the current challenges of the international economy. Different paradigms in economics are trying to explain these crises and design policy responses to move towards sustainable development in its three dimensions, economic, social and environmental. Post-Keynesian, Structuralist, Institutionalist, Evolutionary, and Schumpeterian economists, among others, have contributed to the debate and expanded the opportunities for a pluralist conversation and cross-fertilization. This workshop aims to bring together researchers from different intellectual traditions and countries to discuss their research results and ongoing research advances on these major topics.

This workshop aims specially to promote the participation of Phd students and young scholars (3 years since earning a PhD degree) working in the following areas:

  • The political economy of structural change and income distribution
  • Economic, industrial and technological policies for a fair transition
  • Models and empirical analysis on gender, caring society and development
  • Center-periphery and the reshaping of the international insertion of the periphery
  • Macroeconomic policy effects on structural change and income distribution
  • Historical interpretations on structural change and multidimensional inequality
  • Financial instability, debt and the financing of sustainable development
  • How to combine different insights from different schools of thought, highlighting their complementarities and / or points of discordance
  • Multidimensional poverty and the Sustainable Development Goals

Extended abstracts and full paper submissions: Interested scholars are invited to apply to the workshop by submitting an extended abstract (1500-2000 words). The paper selection follows a blind review method. The major prerequisites for acceptance are completeness and relatedness to the required topics.
