International Initiative for Promoting Political Economy (IIPPE)

3rd International Research Workshop

http://www.iippe.org/wiki/3rd_International_Research_Workshop_Call_for_Abstracts

 

Call for Abstracts for the 3rd IIPPE International Research Workshop, Ankara, September 14th and 15th, 2009

IIPPE invites applications to its 3rd Annual Research Workshop in Ankara, Turkey on the 14-15th September 2009. The event is organised with the support of TSSA (Turkish Social Sciences Association) under the theme of “The Crisis, Interdisciplinarity and Alternatives”. Those interested in participating are invited to send a one-page abstract to 132590@soas.ac.uk before the deadline of 15th May 2009 (with the subject: IIPPE 3rd Research Workshop). We aim to inform successful participants and attendees by 8th June.

 
Participants are required to provide a written paper in advance, the deadline for delivery of which is the 14th August 2009.

IIPPE Working Groups are encouraged to put forward a collective proposal for a session (usually 3-4 papers) within the Workshop. Please submit such session proposals, indicating the names and titles of the session papers to 132590@soas.ac.uk before the 15th May. Abstracts for these papers, and the papers themselves, should then be sent separately as above.

IIPPE is only able at most to cover basic accommodation and food costs for most workshop participants. We therefore strongly urge you to seek alternative sources of funding to cover the cost of travel and other expenses, including a workshop fee if available. Please indicate whether you have such funding in place when sending your abstract to us.
For further information regarding the event please contact 132590@soas.ac.uk
