Call for Papers for the Conference
New Industrial Policies in Emerging Economies - Institutional Foundations, Instruments and Economic Performance
26-27 June 2017 Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation, Hiroshimastraße 28, 10785 Berlin

While industrial policies were heavily contested after the crises of protectionist economics during the 70s and 80s with the neoliberal paradigm becoming the mainstream theory for economics, we are now witnessing a Dzrejuvenationdz of industrial policies. The growing re-acceptance is inter alia driven by the vibrant success of East and Southeast Asian economies. These countries inspiring the economic policies of nowadays developing economies are perceived to be successful due to the pursuance of a robust industrial policy agenda. Eventually, the global financial crisis has accelerated this trend significantly since it questioned the promises of the Washington Consensus. Industrial policy does not only seem to be fashionable again for policy-advising in developing countries and emerging economies, but also the front-riders of the laissez-faire economic theory are working on a more strategic and proactive approach for their industries.

Yet, the revival should not be put on a par with what we understood by industrial policies earlier. While industrial policies were traditionally formed of protectionist policies rejecting the opening of markets and breaking down of trade barriers for vulnerable emerging economies, we now witness the success of a hybrid model: the merging of free trade policies with vertical industrial policies. Strong export-oriented policies and protectionist policies in selective sectors are not a contradiction; on the contrary, they go well hand in hand. The successful emerging economies negotiate trade agreements and attract foreign investment while subsidizing and supporting certain sectors.

The research group Governance in Emerging Economies (GEE) invites scholars to submit papers on related topics. The call is embedded in a two-days conference organized jointly by GEE and the Department for Asia and the Pacific of the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation (FES). Day 1 shall be committed to the dialogue with practitioners on the re-emergence of industrial policies in developing and emerging economies. On Day 2, the conference shall be dedicated to the discussion of academic papers in small working groups. We will examinesuccessful examples of innovative industrial policies, their institutional foundations and the subsequent new challenges for policy-advisers and policy-makers.

Topics for Submission

Contributions to the conference can be devoted to theoretical or empirical issues relatedto the following topics in emerging economies:
