Okay, none of you met me in Paris in October. Fine. I forgive you. But, the relevant question is, how do we move forward from here? Well, you could meet me at this awesome roundtable on “The State and the Market” that I’m hosting with Tsilly Dagan on December 30th at Bar Ilan University. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, just drop me (Krawiec@law.duke.edu) or Tsilly (Tsilly.Dagan@biu.ac.il) an email letting us know you plan to attend.
We are happy to invite you for a roundtable on “The State and the Market” to be held December 30th 2014 at Bar Ilan University Faculty of Law (room # 300 @ the Banin building).
Please find below a short description of the focus of our discussions as well as our schedule
Tsilly Dagan & Kimberly D. Krawiec
The State and The Market
The intersection of the state and the market is the center of attention of many theoretical perspectives and disciplines. The ways in which states design their markets and set their borders has a major effect on the nature of society, and the identities of individuals within it. At the same time markets (in goods, in services, investments as well as the market-like competition between states under globalization) alter states’ policies and capabilities and curtail their sovereign powers.
In this workshop, we wish to encourage participants to present their work in progress focusing on the description, explanation, and the normative evaluation of the mutual effects of states and markets: the cases where the two institutions limit one another and the cases where they facilitate each other’s prosperity.
