International Linkages of Economic and Public Health Security
Call for Papers
The Department of International Studies is calling for paper abstracts to be submitted by February 21, 2020 for a conference on “International Linkages of Economic and Public Health Security” with a view to inspiring an interdisciplinary discussion on the subject between participants from various different disciplines (including and especially International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, Health Sciences and Climatology).
The conference is to be held on April 9, 2020.
Papers are to cover a wide range of topics related to the subject of the conference, with international linkages of economic and public health security in the focus. Some examples, to illustrate the diversity of contributions we are expecting, and by no means to exhaust the conceivable possibilities:
- Implications of economic recession for international security
- Toxic linkages: The mechanisms behind the emergence and spread of economic crises
- The public health implications of climate change and processes of migration
- International political determinants of public health
- Current challenges to Universal Health Coverage
- Emerging diseases and international cooperation
- The political economy of neglected diseases
Abstracts on the above or other, similarly interesting subjects should be sent by the above deadline (February 21, 2020) to Chief Organizer Péter Marton, Ph.D. at email@example.com.
Interested scholars and students are also welcome to contact Dr. Marton with any questions they may have related to the planned conference.
The occasion of the conference will serve to herald the publication of the print edition of the Palgrave Encyclopedia of Global Security Studies (ed. by Péter Marton, Scott Romaniuk and Manish Thapa — a forthcoming publication).
One of the aims of the conference is to assemble a journal special issue for publication (details to be announced later on). The deadline for the submission of articles will be April 17 (that is, one week after the conference).
[The conference is connected to a research project co-sponsored by the European Union, Hungary and the European Social Fund in the framework of the EFOP-3.6.3-VEKOP-16-2017-00007 project (titled „Tehetségből fiatal kutató – A kutatói életpályát támogató tevékenységek a felsőoktatásban”).]
