State and State Capacities, Democracy and Development

Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague, nám. Jana Palacha 2

Keynote Speakers
Laurence Whitehead, University of Oxford

Department of Political Science, Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague and Taipei Cultural and Economic Office in Prague invite for the international conference State and State Capacities, Democracy and Development, which will be held at the Faculty of Arts, Charles University in Prague on 19th November 2015. The conference brings together academics to address issues on development and its impacts on states and democratic regimes.

Conference Topic
Although the close relationship between development and democracy was understood as the ironclad evidence, authoritarian regimes around the world demonstrate that these regimes can reap the benefits of economic development without relaxing their political control or proceeding to political liberalization. In addition, considering liberal hegemony, trends in democratization in states such as Afghanistan, or even democratic tradition in states like Papua New Guinea, we should take the state capacities and stateness into account as structural constraints on democracies and development. The conference takes up these complex questions about the relationships between the state, democracy and development. It intends to focus on the democracies in the developing world and compares the above-mentioned relationship in the developing world to Eastern Europe. However, our understanding of development covers broader view than just successful socio-economic development, paraphrasing James C. Scott, we have to be aware not only of successful schemes of development, but also of schemes that were supposed to improved human condition but failed.

We welcome contributions from political scientists, historians, sociologists and other academics in Humanities and Social Sciences. Papers should cover one or several themes related to development and democracy and we welcome both theoretical and empirical papers. No geographic restrictions are imposed.

Recommended topics of papers are as following:
State, state capacities and development
Democracy and its impacts on development
Authoritarian regimes and development
Successful and failed cases of development
Democracy, Development and East Asia
State-society synergy and development
Modernization and state building
Democracy, development and stability
Working languages of the conference is English.
