Summary

The Resources on the European socio-economic model (RESuME) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+Jean Monnet Action for Institutions and the University of Luxembourg, aims to contribute to the study of the European socio-economic model, its origins, current characteristics and future development. The project focuses on the interaction between society, economic players and public authorities, through the prism of the notion of European competitiveness. It draws on the disciplines of contemporary history, law, economics, political science, political philosophy and sociology. To shed further light on this subject, the RESuME project is creating an innovative new series of scholarly contributions: the ‘State, Society, Market and Europe’ Research Papers (RESuME Papers).

Presentation

The Resources on the European socio-economic model (RESuME) project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Action for Institutions and the University of Luxembourg, aims to contribute to the study of the European socio-economic model, its origins, current characteristics and future development. The project focuses on the interaction between society, economic players and public authorities, through the prism of the notion of European competitiveness. It draws on the disciplines of contemporary history, law, economics, political science, political philosophy and sociology.

To shed further light on this subject, the RESuME project is creating an innovative new series of scholarly contributions: the ‘State, Society, Market and Europe’ Research Papers (RESuME Papers). The RESuME Papers will be published on an open access basis via the dedicated project platform and will serve as a basis for high-level multidisciplinary, cross-sectoral reflection on the multiple dynamic interactions between society, the economy and the state that are encouraged and/or reflected by the pursuit of competitiveness in the European area.

Main themes

The topics that are of particular interest for the RESuME Papers are as follows:

  • the multiple bases (economic, historical, philosophical, etc.) of the notion of competitiveness in the European area

The aim of this first topic is to explore the economic theories, value systems, philosophies, schools of thought and economic, cultural or sociological contexts that underpin, explain and justify the concept of competitiveness. The question of competitiveness in ordoliberalism merits further study, as does the role of competitiveness in the value system of European societies and the European Union.

  • the empirical expression of competitiveness within the European Union

Contributions here could analyse the power and impact of the overriding demand for competitiveness in the economy, with regard to regions, economic operators and employees. Areas for analysis include the relationship between competitiveness and urban development, competitiveness in the working environment, the interaction between competitiveness and competition, etc.

  • representations of European competitiveness

In this topic, authors are invited to examine the various ways in which the notion of competitiveness is represented within European political classes and populations and in literature, humanities and social sciences.

  • the regulation of competitiveness in the European Union

The aim of this topic is to examine the ways in which competitiveness is regulated, how this regulation is organised and the forms of governance introduced within companies, social partners, regions, states and the EU to support/implement competitiveness.

  • changes to the European welfare state as a result of competitiveness

Since the late 1970s, the European welfare state model has been in crisis. Contributions on this subject could examine the extent to which competitiveness has influenced the transformation of the welfare state or contributed to its redevelopment or decline. Particular attention could be given to the relationship between competitiveness and sovereignty as well as to the way in which the demand for competitiveness has shaped and affected the implementation of public policies.

  • interactions between competitiveness and solidarity

The aim of this final topic is to examine the links between competitiveness and solidarity (between states, citizens, territorial entities and sectors). Authors might analyse the theoretical, philosophical, historical, economic, legal and political compatibility between the two concepts, their interactions and how their relationship has developed. In this topic, authors are invited to explore how solidarity has been reshaped by the impetus of the drive for competitiveness. Mechanisms and specific expressions of solidarity could also be examined.

Submission guidelines

Researchers in different fields (law, sociology, contemporary history, economics, political philosophy and anthropology) who are interested in this call are invited to submit a subject proposal. Particular attention will be given to proposals from researchers in the early stages of their career. Abstracts should be sent by email to Alessia Virone: alessia.virone@uni.lu.

Proposals should be submitted in French or English

by Monday 12 December 2016 at 12 noon GMT at the latest;

they should outline the subject in no more than 500 words. They should indicate the first and last names of the author(s) as well as job title(s) and home institutions.

Authors whose contributions are selected will be informed by 31 January 2017 at the latest. They will be invited to a presentation seminar which will be held in March 2017 in Luxembourg. The papers must be original and not yet published elsewhere. The authors of the selected articles will be given a fixed fee of €250 for the transfer of copyright.

Assessment

The publications will be assessed both internally (by the RESuME editors) and externally (by the scientific committee). The peer-review committee is composed of

  • Jean-Marc Ferry (philosopher and holder of the Chair in European Philosophy at the University of Nantes),
  • Blanche Sousi (Emeritus Professor and holder of the ad personam Jean Monnet Chair in European Banking and Monetary Law at Lyon 3 University),
