Je, 2019-03-28 02:45 - 19:00


Workshop "Political Economy - What’s the Value Added" (PDF, 110 Ko) in honor of the the launch of HAY, Colin and SMITH, Andy, (eds.). Dictionnaire d'économie politique : Capitalisme, institutions, pouvoir. Paris : Presses de Sciences Po, 2018

Thursday 28 March 2019, 2.45 - 7 pm, Sciences Po, Room Goguel, 27 rue Saint-Guillaume, 75007 Paris

Political Economy as an approach focuses on the link between politics and economics, refusing to think one without the other. In a time of disciplinary specialization, it is particularly challenging to maintain such a focus of research. So what is the value added of such an enterprise, given these adverse conditions? This workshop is devoted to answer this question, using the contributions and contributors of the “Dictionnaire” to prime the discussion.
