Wars, Non-Capitalist Mixed Economies and Socialism
2-3rd September, 2023
Venue: Hotel Corvin, Budapest, 1094, Angyal utca 31, Hungary, Corvin room
Hybrid conference, supported by Rosa-Luxemburg-Stiftung.
This year’s conference is the third of the yearly Non-Capitalist Mixed Economies conferences. This time it considers how wars historically and today have contributed to the success or failures of socialist projects all around the world. It also discusses what processes we see in this respect in our current world, what geopolitical and geoeconomic reordering is going on, and whether we see any possible outcome toward socialism and/or non-capitalist mixed economies. Our focus will be on economic developments in conjunction with political efforts and forces.
Selected talks will be later published by Eszmélet Journal.
Participation for the audience is free of charge, we welcome everyone interested in the venue, for our online participants registration is needed through this LINK.
The talks will be in English, and translation both from Hungarian to English and from English to Hungarian will be provided in Zoom for registered participants in the online stream.
