About the event
The Political Economy of the European Peripheries Summer School 2022 – Varieties of Peripheralization aims to assess and discuss the variegated dynamics of peripheralization, which are being shaped and reshaped by processes of global and regional integration, of structural transformation and of imbalances, viz-à-viz the center. Theoretically, it will revisit and combine hitherto unconnected strands of the relevant literature, mobilizing concepts like core, periphery and semi-periphery, structural transformation or cumulative causation, recognizing the asymmetric configuration of the European integration process or the uneven and dependent trajectories of development, and the renewed interest in industrial policy and the state’s role, which was magnified by ongoing crises.
The Political Economy of the European Peripheries Summer School 2022 – Varieties of Peripheralization is aimed at Master and PhD students, or young researchers in an early stage of their careers. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with leading scholars and peers, through work and discussion in groups, and to present and discuss their own research and their research papers. Informal moments of conversation will be promoted. The working language of the Summer School is English.
The Summer School promotes reflection on the variegated dynamics of peripheralization with a group of national and international scientists in an interdisciplinary perspective, developing a close relationship between science, society and culture. The Summer School, taking place in Avis, includes some of its activities in articulation with non-academic speakers, institutional actors of the territory and artists.
