Welfare Societies in transition

Conference - Arpril 16 & 17, 2018

Polanyi revisited through the lens of welfare state, social democracy and solidarity economy.

Following the previous seminar of 19th and 20th May 2016, which focused on a key question in Polanyi’s work: the relationship between economic and political pluralism, this conference explores further how a renewed reconciliation between the redistributive capacity of the welfare state and the reciprocal and collective capacities of associative life may form a cornerstone in a new welfare society. This is an invitation to explore how a Polanyian framework may contribute to define a way forward for the welfare state in an international perspective.

Conference co-organised by  the research initiative Plural democracy and economy of the Collège d'études mondiales, Roskilde University and EMES.

The seminar is co-chaired by Lars Hulgård (Roskilde University, Denmark and EMES) and Jean-Louis Laville (Collège d'études mondiales, CNAM, France, Karl Polanyi Institute of Political Economy and EMES).
