Call for papers:
The Age of Austerity: A New Challenge for State Powers
The Europa Institute and the Edinburgh Centre for Constitutional Law are pleased to announce the call for papers for a workshop on state powers in the age of austerity, to be held at the University of Edinburgh on March 30th 2016.
The workshop seeks to examine how the powers of the state are affected, A) in cases where austerity measures are prescribed to national governments by supranational organisations and B) in cases where austerity measures are imposed by central governments to devolved or federal administrations in composite systems. Papers that include (but are not limited to) the following themes are particularly welcome:
Scholars in the broader fields of Law, Political Science and Economics are particularly encouraged to submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to Dimitrios.Kagiaros@ed.ac.uk or Carlotta.Redi@ed.ac.uk.
The deadline for submission is Sunday, 20 December 2015, 8pm. Notifications of acceptance will be sent out in mid-January. Final papers of no more than 6000 words (including footnotes) must be submitted by March 1st 2016. Selected Papers will be included in the Europa Working Paper series or as blog posts on the Europa blog. We consider publishing the proceeds of the conference as an edited volume with a leading publisher.
Registration is free. Speakers and attendees need to cover their own expenses for travel and accommodation. Refreshments and lunch will be provided on the day free of charge.
