Workshop on Capitalism in Peripheral Economies
The MPIfG hosted an international workshop with the title ”The Politics of Growth, Stagnation, and Upgrading in Advanced Peripheral Economies” from July 12 to 13, 2022. The global financial crisis and more recently the COVID-19 pandemic have highlighted the divisions between core and periphery globally and within regional economic blocs. In spite of recent interest in peripheral capitalism, research continues to focus on a small core of advanced economies in Europe and North America. The workshop aimed to overcome these limitations and expand the geographical reach of comparative political economy, with the resulting analysis of peripheral capitalism contributing to the recent literature on the varieties of growth models and strategies. Around twenty-five researchers from fifteen countries, among them Brazil, Mexiko, Uruguay, Israel, Hungary, and Romania, took part in the workshop. Its organizers were Arianna Tassinari (MPIfG), Fabio Bulfone (Leiden University), and Aldo Madariaga (Diego Portales University, Santiago de Chile).
