Economic Policies In The Context Of The Socio-Ecological Transition

Date: 25-26 July
Location: HWR Berlin
Deadline for abstracts: 1 June

Climate change (CC) is imposing a great challenge to humanity, both in the economic and social dimensions. Regarding the economic dimension, climate change increases physical risks on economic activities, due to the possible damage to companies’ capital assets, and transition risks, due to the effects that the green transition may impose on brown activities. These risks are unequally distributed around the world since most developing countries depend on primary resource extraction, which is directly affected by them. Moreover, regarding the social dimension, climate change is imposing many risks, as it affects migration paths, increases vector-borne disease areas, worsens health conditions, and affects food and water sovereignty, among others. These risks have several consequences on the economic configurations of multiple countries. Particularly, many developing countries depend on foreign currency income from agriculture and fishing activities to stabilize the exchange rate. Additionally, the increase in global temperature may affect labor productivity due to the decrease in working hours that may arise from it. In this context, it becomes relevant to assess how the economic configuration of different economies is being transformed by climate change and how economic policies should evolve to cope with it.

The Economic Development and Keynesian Economics working groups would like to invite you to participate in a workshop that assesses the issues mentioned in the previous paragraph. Novel contributions to general economic theory and applied studies that may be a starting point for future studies in these fields are also welcome. A list of the topics of interest of this workshop are listed below:

  • Developing Economics in the context of the socio-ecological transition
  • Macroeconomics in the context of open economies and growth regimes.
  • Climate Change effects interconnections with financial and macroeconomic setups.
  • Industrial Policy, International Trade and Global Value Chains.

The workshop,  co-organized with the Institute for International Political Economy (IPE) Berlin, will take place at the Schöneberg Campus of the Berlin School of Economics and Law on July 25th and 26th. In this activity, young scholars are expected to present their research, and some of them will receive feedback from the following senior researchers according to their research topic:

• Giorgos Galanis (Queen Mary, University of London, UK)
• Robert A. Blecker (American University, US)

The deadline for abstract submission (300-750 words) will be June 1st and the results will be announced by mid-June. Full papers will be required by July 5th. Limited travel and accommodation stipends will be provided for selected young scholars, based on the quality and quantity of the contributions. If you are interested in this funding, please indicate it in the application form.

In cooperation with Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik

Sara Cantillon, Odile Mackett and Sara Stevano have written a much-needed introduction to key topics in feminist political economy, including the global division of labour, social reproduction, child and elder care, the household and intra-household inequalities, labour market inequalities, welfare regimes, the feminization of poverty and economic indicators. The book launch will offer economics educators access to the topic and inspiration for their courses. Students are givenresources and insights by the help of which they can initiate and campaign for curriculum change at their universities. In addition, the teaching materials presented are intended to encourage everyone who is interested in the role of power relations and inequality in the economy to approach the topic on their own.

The authors will then present their book “Feminist Political Economy – A Global Perspective”, which was published in 2023. This is followed by a presentation of a course which is based on this book and was produced together with the Network for Pluralist Economics. At the end of the event the audience can ask questions. The event will take place in English, there will be no online broadcast.

In Kooperation mit dem Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik

Wir leben in krisenhaften Zeiten! Dabei sind die Klimakrise und das Artensterben, die zunehmende soziale Ungleichheit und wachsende Finanzmarktinstabilität unter den größten Herausforderungen, mit denen wir uns konfrontiert sehen. So unterschiedlich diese Krisen auch sein mögen, haben sie doch einen gemeinsamen Fluchtpunkt: Die Art und Weise, wie wir wirtschaften.

Damit fällt den Wirtschaftswissenschaften eine große Verantwortung für die Bewältigung der vielseitigen Krisen unserer Zeit zu, denn wirtschaftliche Praxis und Theorie stehen in einem engen Wechselverhältnis. Mit dem Ziel dieser Verantwortung gerecht zu werden haben eine Vielzahl an wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fachbereichen und Hochschulen ein Lehrangebot geschaffen, welches sich durch theoretische und methodische Vielfalt, wissenschaftliche Reflexivität und Offenheit, sowie praxisnahe und problemzentrierte Ansätze auszeichnet - kurzum ein Lehrangebot, wie wir als Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik es in unserem Impulspapier seit Jahren fordern. Es entstand ein ökonomisches Lehrangebot, das für die Zukunft wappnet; es entstand eine future-fit economics.

Auf der Mastermesse „future-fit economics“ werden diese zukunftsfähigen Studiengänge in offenen und dialogischen Formaten vorgestellt. Es wird ein tiefer Einblick in die jeweiligen Studiengänge geboten und Austausch zwischen Hochschulvertreter:innen und Studieninteressierten ermöglicht. In diesem Rahmen kann herausgefunden werden, in welchem der angebotenen Studiengänge die eigenen Interessen und Schwerpunkten am besten verfolgt werden können. Denn die vertretenen Studiengänge vereinen eine große Vielzahl an Ansätzen, Didaktiken, methodischen Zugängen und Perspektiven, sowie ihr Fokus auf zukunftsfähige, sozial gerechte und ökologisch nachhaltige wirtschaftliche Theorie und Praxis.

Das Netzwerk Plurale Ökonomik engagiert sich seit der Vereinsgründung 2007 für einen Wandel in den Wirtschaftswissenschaften. Der Verein ist aus einer Kritik an der neoklassisch geprägten Volkswirtschaftslehre heraus entstanden. Die bei der Mastermesse vertretenen Studiengänge vereinen eine große Vielzahl verschiedener Forschungsansätze, Lehrmethoden und Perspektiven auf eine zukunftsfähige Ökonomie.

Navigating the Polycrisis: A conference on European Macroeconomics

9-11 September 2023, HWR Berlin

Let's talk about money: Our mission is to bring together scholars and practitioners to discuss the pressing challenges of our time. Fundamental changes in economic policy are needed to master the green transformation and move towards a postcolonial world which is more inclusive, gender-responsive and equitable for everyone.

We invite you to talk with us about topics like the fiscal framework of the eurozone, ideas for a Green New Deal, inflation, neocolonial dependencies, gender-sensitive monetary policy and many more. Experts in their fields like Randall Wray, Yan Lian, and Nathan Tankus will present and discuss the latest developments in temporary economics, using the analytical lens of MMT for a deeper understanding of the challenges we face and advance our macroeconomic thinking.

Find information on the program and registration on the conference website.

The Return of Inflation - Challenges for Macroeconomic Policy

2 June 2023, 4 to 6 pm (CET), HWR Berlin, Campus Schöneberg, Building A, Room A2.04

Speakers:

Prof. Joshua Aizenman (PhD), University of Southern California and NBER

How does the recent inflation surge impact sovereign borrowing?

Dr. Albrecht Sommer, Deutsche Bundesbank Regional Office Berlin and Brandenburg

Which course should monetary policy take to address the inflation surge?

Prof. Dr. Hansjörg Herr, IPE

What role does income policy have in the recent rise in inflation?

Moderators:

Prof. Dr. Martina Metzger, IPE and HWR

Prof. Dr. Dorothea Schäfer, DIW Berlin and Jönköping University

The last time advanced countries hit two-digit annual inflation rates, the world entered into stagflation. The stagflation of the 1970s was followed by a worldwide economic slump and the outbreak of the Latin American debt crisis at the beginning of the 1980s, all triggered by overly restrictive US monetary policy. 
Prof. Joshua Aizenman, who serves as the Dockson Chair in Economics and International Relations at the University of Southern California, Albrecht Sommer from Deutsche Bundesbank, and Hansjörg Herr (IPE) will discuss what the impacts and thus prospects are this time. Hereby, they focus on the impacts on Emerging Markets and sovereign borrowing, discuss how monetary policy in the Euro Area addresses inflationary pressures and finally elaborate on the limited contribution of wages and salaries to the recent surge of inflation.

Online participation is possible; link can be requested via email to ipe.studentassistant(at)gmail.com.

    Die Hochschule für Wirtschaft und Recht Berlin (HWR) gehört zu den wichtigen Standorten für eine plurale Wirtschaftswissenschaft und ein interdisziplinäres BWL-Studium in Deutschland. Die plurale und interdisziplinäre Ausrichtung ist am Fachbereich 1 (Wirtschaftswissenschaften) jedoch gegenwärtig gefährdet. Heterodoxe Professuren drohen nicht wiederbesetzt zu werden, und profilgebende Studiengänge und -inhalte drohen inhaltlich ausgehöhlt zu werden.  

    Am 13. Juni 2019 fand daher eine Protestaktion im Hinterhof der HWR statt, organisiert von Student*innen der drei pluralen Master-Programme International Economics (IE), Labour Policies and Globalization (LPG) und Political Economy of European Integration (POLEI). Ziel war es den Unmut vieler Student*innen über die aktuellen Entwicklungen an der HWR öffentlich zu machen. Im Rahmen eines Sommerfestes – inklusive guter Musik und vegetarischem Barbecue – wurden Student*innen über die Gefährdung des pluralen und interdisziplinären Profils der Hochschule informiert. In verschiedenen Redebeiträgen betonten Student*innen, Alumni und Vertreter*innen des Netzwerks Plurale Ökonomik die Bedeutung und Wichtigkeit der Hochschule als Ort kritischer Wissenschaft. Eine Petition für den Erhalt des LPG Masters – dessen Fortführung an der HWR ab dem kommenden Semester fraglich ist – erhielt schon allein an diesem Nachmittag etwa 170 Unterschriften. Unter den Unterzeichner*innern befinden sich hauptsächlich Wirtschaftsstudent*innen der HWR, FU und HU – von denen auch viele aus dem BWL-Bereich kommen. Zudem haben viele Beschäftigte der HWR die Aktion unterstützt. An der Petition kann unter nachfolgendem Link weiterhin teilgenommen werden:

    In April and May 2019 the "Polanyi Lecture" takes place in Vienna. It is organized by the International Karl Polanyi Society. The IPE is a cooperation partner.
    Altogether there are three events:

    XIV Global Labour University Conference – Reflecting 100 years of ILO – Shaping the rules for a new century of labour

    "Reflecting 100 years of ILO – Shaping the rules for a new century of labour” is the title of the XIV Global Labour University Conference that takes place from March 27-29 in Berlin. It is organized by Berlin School of Economics and Law, International Center for Development and Decent Work (ICDD), Friedrich Ebert Stiftung and IPE. The Global Labour University (GLU) invites labour activists and academics to contribute to the global discourse on what kinds of new global rules are necessary, what role the ILO is expected to play in a system of global governance, and how we can strengthen international labour solidarity to obtain the rules needed.

    Vom 22.-23. Juni 2017 findet am Campus Schöneberg an der HWR die von Prof. Sigrid Betzelt (FB 1), gemeinsam mit Prof. Ingo Bode (Universität Kassel) organisierte Jahrestagung der Sektion Sozialpolitik der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Soziologie statt zum Thema „Angst im Sozialstaat – Sozialstaat in Angst?“.

    In insgesamt fünfzehn Vorträgen werden verschiedene Aspekte von Ängsten und Verunsicherung im Kontext von Sozialpolitik und sozialem Wandel diskutiert. Den Anfang machen drei Keynotes, darunter die ehemalige FB1-Kollegin Prof. Dorothea Schmidt, sowie Prof. Heinz Bude (Kassel) und Prof. Olaf Groh-Samberg (Bremen). Diskutiert wird u.a. was die Sozialpolitik-Reformen der jüngeren Vergangenheit bewirkt haben und inwiefern durch sie Ängste eher befördert denn besänftigt wurden. Neben Ängsten im Kontext der aktuellen Flüchtlingskrise werden fast alle sozialpolitischen Felder abgedeckt – vom Kinderschutz, Arbeit und Arbeitslosigkeit bis zur Altersarmut.

    Neben der akademischen Debatte findet am 22.6. abends eine Podiumsdiskussion mit vier Bundestagsabgeordneten statt, moderiert von Malte Kreutzfeldt (taz).

    Germany has come to be seen as a shining example in Europe in recent years due to its relatively good performance in terms of growth and employment. The strategy of deregulation, dismantling the welfare state and reforming the labour market seems to have turned the former ‘sick man of Europe‘ into a successful role model. The recommendation for the European neighbours, above all for the crisis-ridden countries in the periphery, is to copy (a radicalized version of) this model in order to regain economic strength.

    However, recently, increasing doubts have been raised about the German model: The deregulation of the labour market and the encouragement of a low-wage sector are said to have significantly increased income inequality and poverty and to have led to extremely weak wage growth. This in turn is said to have weakened domestic demand and fuelled international economic imbalances due to the build-up of large export surpluses. Germany is said to outcompete its neighbours by way of excessive wage moderation and to not doing enough to boost economic growth in Europe. Criticisms in this vein by international organisations – even by the European Commission - have become quite frequent.

    This meeting will take a critical look at the role of German labour market and wages policies both from a German and from an international perspective. Given the outstanding importance of Franco-German political and economic relations the focus is on the French perspective.

    The event is part of the ‘tour of Europe’ by the French Économistes Atterrés. This group of ‘appalled‘ economists was founded in 2010 to protest against the dominant economic doctrine in France and has since become a well-known participant in the country’s economic policy debates. Their founding manifesto was published as a book which has sold more than 80,000 copies.. Since then, Atterrés has published several other books and been involved in a wide range of public activities. The Atterrés’ tour of Europe, which is taking place in the run-up to the European elections, aims to campaign for the adoption of an alternative economic policy in Europe. (http://www.atterres.org/).

    Invited speakers

    • Prof. Dr. Henri Sterdyniak (Director of the division‚ ‘Economics of Globalisation‘ at the French economic research institute OFCE, Paris and founding member of the Économistes Atterrés) 
    • Prof. Dr. Gustav Horn (Director of the Macroeconomic Policy Institute at Hans-Boeckler-Foundation, Duesseldorf and professor at the university of Duisburg-Essen).

    The discussion will be chaired by Prof. Dr. Trevor Evans, president of the IPE Berlin and professor for monetary theory, monetary policy and international currency relations at BSEL.
    The conference was organised by Prof. Dr. Achim Truger who holds a professorship in economics, particularly macroeconomics and economic policy at BSEL.

    Etwas mehr als 10 Jahre nach dem Ende des Apartheid-Regimes - im Jahr 2006 ? hat das Zentrum für Soziologische Forschung der Universität von Johannesburg ca. 3.000 Haushalte in Soweto repräsentativ befragt.

    In dieser bislang einzigartigen Studie wurde eine Fülle von Informationen erhoben, die Aussagen über das ?neue? Selbstver­ständnis, den Wertewandel, die politische Orientierung, die Lebensziele und generell zur soziale Lage der schwarzen Mehrheitsbevölkerung in der Millionen-Stadt Soweto geben können.Die Ergebnisse dieser Untersuchungen, die von der Rosa Luxemburg Stiftung gefördert wurden, liegen nun mehr vor und werden von Vertretern des Forschungsteams in Deutschland präsentiert.

    Neben der Diskussion von unmittelbar auf die Studie selbst bezogenen Fragestellungen bieten gerade die dort gewonnenen Einsichten einer hervorragende Hintergrund­information für ein besseres Verständnis der aktuellen politischen Entwicklungen in der Republik Südafrika, wo am 22. April ein neues Parlament und ein neuer Präsident gewählt werden wird.
