European Conference on Politics, Economics and Law–Brighton, UK

The European Conference on Politics Economics and Law ECPEL2015

The European Conference on Politics, Economics and Law 2015 (ECPEL 2015) will be held on July 9-12, 2015 in Brighton, UK. The theme of the conference is “power”:

“Power as a commodity has challenged the minds of social scientists and philosophers while its exercise has always fascinated historians. From classical thinkers’ works such as Aristotle’s Politka or Machiavelli’s Il Principe through modern figures who manipulate power in the media, like Silvio Berlusconi or Rupert Murdoch, to the vast networks that support major heads of state, power has been a necessity to some or like an aphrodisiac to others. The dynamics of power and its associations with wealth and status now shape the contemporary world more visibly than ever. It is a research challenge to all fields of the social sciences to offer some explanation of its magnetism and its mechanisms.”
