University of Exeter zaprasza do udziału w konferencji zatytułowanej "The Other Globalisers: How the Socialist and the Non-Aligned World Shaped the Rise of Post-War Economic Globalisation", która odbędzie się w dniach 6-7 lipca 2017 r. Tematy którymi są zainteresowani organizatorzy obejmują:
- theories and models of global economic connectedness: how did actors from the socialist and non-aligned worlds conceptualise e.g. the world economy, global trade;
- the role of decolonisation, and anti-imperial/revolutionary conflict as a driver of globalisation;
- the role of socialist and non-aligned actors at international institutions such as the International Monetary Fund, the World Bank, and the United Nations (and associated organs/initiatives/networks such as the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development, the New International Economic Order, or the Group of 77 developing countries);
- the role of the development paradigm;
- cultural approaches to ‘socialist globalisation’, such as the relationship between socialist and non-aligned states’ promotion of economic interconnectedness and their political-cultural values such as solidarity and fraternity;
- the role of the socialist and non-aligned worlds in creating new forms of trade and markets;
- the role of socialist and non-aligned involvement in specific sectors and markets, e.g. oil, textiles, coffee, construction, etc.;
- the role of the socialist world in so-called ‘deviant globalisations’, such as in arms sales, drug trafficking and counterfeiting;
- the role of socialist and Third World banks, financial innovations, new currencies, export credits, and indebtedness;
- relations/links/influences across economic systems: e.g. collaboration across blocs, collaborations between the non-socialist Third World and socialist Second/Third World, and the impact of alternative economic processes on Western-led globalisation;
- internal responses and adjustments to globalising forces within the socialist and non-aligned world;
- the role of globalising economic processes on the survival and collapse of socialist systems across the world;
- the ongoing histories of these contributions and alternatives in the post-Cold War world.
