“From 26 to 28 November 2019, SOMO, Centro Cultural de la Cooperación Floreal Gorini, with scholars from the University of Buenos Aires and the University of San Martín organise a conference titled ‘The Financialisation and Developement in the Global South’. This is a call for papers.
We are interested in the following questions:
- What are the main features of financialization in developing economies?
- How do we conceptualize the development of underdevelopment under conditions of finance-led capitalism?
- How does financialization alter prospects for development?
- How does a comparative analysis of financialization across different institutional models in the developing world look like?
Keynote Speakers for the conference are
This conference will bring together different academic communities, policymakers and civil society organizations. In particular, we invite scholars from disciplines that range from economics, political economy, geography, development studies, political science, urban studies and law. Representatives of civil society organizations are invited to present research and projects and to join the conversation. The conference will be bilingual (with simultaneous interpretation), Spanish and English, to encourage civil society organizations from across Latin America to participate. The aim is to discuss different expressions and domains of financialization in the developing world in order to build a coherent and integrated picture.”
