The PhD in Law Association Rotterdam (PILAR), in conjunction with the Erasmus School of Law, the Rotterdam School of Management, and the Faculty of Philosophy at Erasmus University Rotterdam, will hold a conference titled “New Business Models and Globalized Markets: Rethinking Public and Private Responsibilities,” to be held April 11–13, 2018, on the campus of Erasmus University.
This topic refers to the legal, economic and societal responses to challenges posed by globalized markets and their effect on social inclusion and sustainable growth. Yet, the concept “public and private responsibilities” should be considered broadly. It can relate to different kinds of doctrines, regulations and policies. The conference aims to bring together junior scholars to discuss strategies and international trends in public and private governance from an interdisciplinary perspective. The wide scope of the conference’s topic will trigger discussions in the fields of social science. The subsequent discussions will enable early-career academics to: (i) contribute with theoretical and/or empirical references; (ii) gather relevant case studies; and (iii) identify recent debates in academia, new trends and drawbacks in social science studies that have arisen with globalization.
In advance of the conference, PILAR invites the submission of papers on related topics by Ph.D candidates, post-doc researchers, and assistant professors. Abstracts of no more than 750 words, along with a short CV, should be sent to pilar[at]law.eur.nl by January 8, 2017.
