7TH CEU Conference in Social Sciences
“What Follows after the Crisis? Approaches to Global Transformations”
Central European University
May 27-29, 2011

Following a global financial crisis and numerous political challenges, 2011 appears to offer us new opportunities for engaging in debates and research work. Bridging economic, political, and social challenges this period continues to be a problematic reality check for theoretical and empirical perspectives. Are the current events ahead of scholars’ conceptualizations, politicians’ capabilities, and policy-makers’ solutions? With many challenges ahead, we hope to generate interdisciplinary academic debates that tackle relevant topics in their fields of research. Through this year’s conference we hope to provide an interdisciplinary space which will enable different perspectives and approaches to come together in order to provide explanations and understandings of contemporary processes.

The working language of the conference is English. There is no participation fee. Accommodation and meals will be provided for all participants, travel grants are available for panel chairs.

Starting 2006, the conference is organized every year. It brings together 10-12 panels with approximately 80 participants from 35 countries. The number of applications gradually increased from year to year reaching a peak of 300 paper applications and 27 panels in 2009 and 2010. The selection of papers is primarily based on their quality.

Location of the conference: Central European University, Budapest, Hungary
