The second Conference on Political Economy will be organized by Kocaeli University (Turkey), Westminster University (England) and  Silesian University (Czech Republic) on 16-18 September 2010, in Kocaeli. The main theme of the second conference has been determined as “Crisis and Development.” In conference that supported as academical by Social Research Foundation (SAV),  The Scientific & Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) and Çanakkale Onsekiz Mart University (Türkiye) and as financial by Central Bank of the Republic of Turkey (CBRT),  Kocaeli Chamber of Industry (KSO) and  Isbank is intended to address the political economy of crisis and development through all of the political, social, global, and systematical dimensions of crisis and development. 

Instead of analyzing the social reality of crisis and development within a limited scope, in other words only through monetary/financial factors or growth variables, this conference aims to generate a ground through which all aspects of the political economy of crisis and development can be discussed. Approaching crisis and development within a historical perspective and the process of change seems necessary in order to fully understand crisis and grasp the reproduction mechanisms of the economic systems. In this context, the conference will explore the dynamics of the courses of the current crisis, stability, development and growth. These dynamics extend from banking to industry, from technology applications to flexible labor organization, from exportled growth strategies to relations of economic dependency. The assessment of these processes at both academic / theoretical and political / hegemonic/ideological levels is among the priorities of this conference.
