Conference on Comparative Responses to the Economic Crisis

PIIRS, CSDP, and Oxford University present the Conference on Comparative Responses to the Economic Crisis, which launches a larger project focused on exploring and explaining how a variety of democratic political systems respond to the current economic crisis.

The investigation seeks to account for similarities and differences in the policies adopted by different countries and to trace the economic and political effects of those policies. Scholars from around the globe will convene at Princeton and Oxford University for conferences, seminars, and colloquia that explore government responses to the crisis; the implications of the crisis for varieties of capitalism; and the implications of the crisis for public attitudes, political participation, and partisan politics.
