PSA Edinburgh Conference 2020 – British and Comparative Political Economy Specialist Group Panels

SPERI Leverhulme Early Career Fellow Dr Scott Lavery has organised a large series of panels for the forthcoming Political Studies Association (PSA) Conference in Edinburgh, which takes place on 6th – 8th April 2020.

The panels are hosted by the British and Comparative Political Economy Specialist Group, of which Scott is Deputy Convenor. The panels bring together over 40 scholars working within the field of political economy from across the UK and further afield.

The panels are organised around themes closely related to SPERI’s ‘Capitalism, Democracy and the State’ research stream, which Scott leads with Colin Hay. Panels will focus on a variety of themes, including The Future of British Capitalism, European Growth Models, Industrial Strategy, the Climate Crisis, Corporate Power and the future of Globalisation.

The full conference schedule will shortly be available here.

The panels have been organised with the support of Inga Rademacher (KCL), Liam Stanley (SPERI), Sean McDaniel (MMU) and Jeremy Green (Cambridge).

Commenting on the panels, Scott said:

This is to my knowledge the largest ever political economy stream to be held at the PSA’s annual conference. It is wonderful to see so many scholars, from established Professors to bright early career researchers, converge on Edinburgh to debate the developmental trajectories of British, European and Global Capitalism. We very much look forward to a productive few days in the Scottish capital’.
