Gambelas Campus - Faculty of Economics, building 9

The 5th Annual Political Economy Meeting "Social and economic vulnerabilities and transformations” will take place at the Faculty of Economics of the University of Algarve on the 28th and 29th of January 2022. The attention of this edition of the main event on Political Economy in Portugal will be centred in the pandemic crisis and on the necessary transformations in the economy and society. In recent years, this meeting has brought together economists and other specialists from the most diverse disciplinary areas and approaches, who understand that economic phenomena are the result of social, political, legal, cultural, technological and ecological factors and that must be studied with attention to their institutional, historical and geographic contexts.

The meeting has a preamble on January 27 with a Winter School, with several invited experts and the discussion of doctoral projects presented by students from several Portuguese and foreign universities.

The 5th Annual Political Economy Meeting is organized by the Portuguese Political Economy Association, Faculty of Economics, University of Algarve, CinTurs - Research Centre in Tourism, Sustainability and Well-being, CEFAGE-UAlg - Centre for Advanced Studies and Training in Management and Economics and by the Centre for Social Studies of the University of Coimbra.

The call for communications is currently open until September 17th, 2021. Proposals must be submitted in Portuguese or English. The Meeting will use a hybrid model, with a majority of face-to-face, plenary and parallel, sessions, and a set of online sessions.
