    Conference, symposium - Economy

    Predatory state

    This symposium is part of a recent and very dynamic renewal of research on the State in economics involving a critical examination of two dominant postulates of the discipline: 1) the assumption of an apolitical State or a benevolent dictatorship which pursues no private interest maximizing the general interest. 2) The assumption of “soft trade”, i.e. the exclusion of social conflicts, inter-state and intra-state wars in the presence of markets. Our discussions aim to explore how the sovereign, prudential, and providential dimensions of the state can be interpreted if these two assumptions are dropped. What is the place of conflictual power in the genesis and evolution of the rules governing the distribution of wealth and economic, social, and ecological development?

    Work in Ethiopia

    Rationalization, dominance and mobilizations

    Work is neither a subject omitted by the research on the Horn of Africa, however this is nor an object of study in its own right. Scholars generally subordinate analysis of work to analysis of development. On the one hand this concept of development is linked with an optimistic vision which highlights the successes of the developmental State implemented in Ethiopia. On the other hand, development is associated to a pessimistic view of the country, focused on poverty reduction.

    The Wage Workshop

    Theoretical, empirical ans historical perspectives on wage, subsistence and basic income

    The Centre Walras-Pareto is organizing a workshop on the history of wages. The workshop will take place at the University of Lausanne (Switzerland), 29-30 September 2016. Much has been written on wages within economics. In his classical account of the history ofwage theory, Dunlop (1957) refers to three time-periods: the wage-fund theory domination,the rise of marginal productivity distribution theory, and the “contemporary setting”, startingin the 1930s and characterized by a diversity of theoretical arguments; but much has changed.

Within theoretical results into perspective by the concrete practice work, clues will be presented to help quality through design process, pedagogy, organization and management for WIL in Higher Education. Value management principles and standards are considered as a global framework to develop such trainings to achieve success in a European Environment (European Standards and Guidelines) but not only: facing uncertainties and constraints. Obviously strategy, policy and leadership have to be considered.

    SITRE - international conference

    A produção científica promovida por instituições e pesquisadores dedicados às diversas áreas do conhecimento tem congestionado o calendário acadêmico brasileiro e internacional com inúmeros eventos; muitos deles dimensionados para reunir milhares de pesquisadores, professores e estudantes, que procuram apresentar e discutir seus trabalhos, assim como os de seus colegas pesquisadores. Frequentemente esses eventos são, também, pensados para tratar de temas dentro de áreas de conhecimento muito específicas. O SITRE é o lugar onde se encontram e se recobrem em suas interfaces as Ciências Humanas e Sociais Aplicadas, as Ciências Exatas, a Educação, as Engenharias, a Filosofia. Onde se encontram pesquisadores, mas também docentes dedicados ao estudo da educação, do trabalho e da identidade e questões relacionadas ao gênero e ergologia.
