Theme Panel: Theory Meets Crisis: What does the Eurocrisis Say to Comparative Politics?

Sat, September 3, 10:00 to 11:30am

This panel invites leading scholars in comparative political economy to reflect on the theoretical fallout of the Eurocrisis. The papers on this panel engage varieties of capitalism; the politics of redistribution; theories of European integration; and comparative regionalism. To what extent has the Eurocrisis confirmed, undermined, or reshaped theoretically grounded expectations in these fields? How has the crisis shifted problematics of research? What new puzzles and questions have come to the fore?
