Alternative imaginations of markets and development



This track invites papers which report on alternative models of ‘development’ from that which dominate the mainstream within the context of globalisation and international markets. In the face of the climate emergency, the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and social and political turmoil, calls for new ways to think about markets and development are required. Where liberalisation of global markets and economies of scale dominate discussions on stimulating economic growth, there are alternative visions of development being enacted around the world. This track calls for submissions which highlight how these alternative communities have come about in order to offer a chance for collective reflection on alternative visions for the future.
