New perspectives for the welfare-state
Presently, the European sovereign debt crises have driven the discussion about whether or not the contemporary welfare state is in jeopardy. Besides the financial crises other factors seem to cast doubt on the continuity of the welfare state as we conceive it today. This conference intends to promote the debate about new perspectives for the welfare-state.
The Department of Economics at the Universidade Portucalense Infante D. Henrique invites all researchers in Economics and related disciplines, from all around the world, to submit papers for presentation at the 2nd International Conference in Economics 2012.
No registration or participation fee will be required.
Submitted papers should discuss one of the following themes:
- social security reform
- social economy
- reform of pension systems
- tax system
- sustainability of the welfare-state
The accepted papers will be published in the CIGE working papers series (ISSN 1646-8953), indexed at Repec. The conference organizers also invite all the participants to submit their papers to the open-access E-Journal Economics.
