    States in Crisis

    Society for the Advancement of Socio-Economics – University of Milan 2013

    The 2013 conference theme, "States in Crisis," is an opportunity to ask and answer a broad range of questions about the contemporary state, from its role in and reactions to economic and fiscal crises to the way in which its contours have or have not adapted and changed in concert with the modern economy to its place as a bulwark against or a catalyst for the construction of more market-driven societies. Within the well-established remit of SASE, participants are invited to submit theoretical and empirical contributions, at multiple levels of analysis from the local to the global, drawing from multi-disciplinary socio-economic frameworks.

Les thématiques et les options sont variées et extrêmement intéressantes : modes de déplacement alternatifs, circulation bien limitée des voitures privées, bâtiments basse consommation, ou bâtiments à énergie zéro ou positive, utilisation des eaux pluviales, matériaux écologiques, mixité sociale et urbaine, combinaison avec le logement social, promotion de modes de vie durables en général... Les écoquartiers sont partout de projets urbains exemplaires, promus par leurs communautés en tant que « vitrines» de savoir-faire technique et d’action durable, mais aussi en tant qu'outils de communication tant au niveau national que international.
