The Fondation France-Japon de l'EHESS (FFJ) is pleased to take part in the organization of SASE 30th annual meeting which will be held in Kyoto on June 23 to 25 2018, hosted by Doshisha University.
The 2018 annual SASE conference in Kyoto will serve as an occasion for existing SASE networks, as well as new groupings in the form of mini-conferences, to explore the ways in which the processes of reordering occurring across the globe are impacting traditional research areas and paradigms of analysis. How are new developments redrawing the practice and governance terrain within firms and corporations, in management practices, in the welfare state, the law, in industrial relations, across supply chains and in regulation? Are processes of innovation and technological change substantively affected by (or even driving) the current process of global reordering? SASE as a community has long embraced values furthering equality, justice and democracy across a broad array of research terrains. How do reordering processes impact those commitments? The Association’s first meeting in Asia, itself an expression of the changing composition of the global academic conversation, seems like a very fitting occasion for reflection on these powerful dynamics of change and recomposition.
Each mini-conference will consist of 3 to 6 panels, which will be featured as a separate stream in the program. Each panel will have a discussant, meaning that selected participants must submit a completed paper in advance, by 1 May 2018. Submissions for panels will be open to all scholars on the basis of an extended abstract. If a paper proposal cannot be accommodated within a mini-conference, organizers will forward it to the most appropriate research network as a regular submission.
Submissions to the SASE conference must be made through one of the research networks below (or through a mini-conference). Paper and session abstracts as well as full papers for grant, prize, and stipend applications must be submitted to all networks by 8 January 2018. Candidates will be notified by early March 2018. Please note that some networks may also require that a full paper be submitted by 1 May 2018 for the purposes of assigning a discussant or awarding a prize. For further information, please contact the organizer of the network to which you are submitting.
The Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics (SASE) is an international, inter-disciplinary organization with members in over fifty countries on five continents. The academic disciplines represented in SASE include economics, sociology, political science, management, psychology, law, history, and philosophy. It aims at advancing the understanding of economic behavior across a broad range of academic disciplines, supporting the intellectual exploration of economic behavior and its policy implications within the context of societal, institutional, historical, philosophical, psychological, and ethical factors, balancing inductive and deductive approaches to the study of economic behavior at both micro and macro levels of analysis.
