Dear Globelics community,
the Globelics Secretariat is releasing the call for papers for the 16th Globelics Conference in Accra, Ghana (24th – 26th of October, 2018).
The main Conference theme for Globlelics 2018 is Innovation, Economic Growth and Sustainable Development: Strengthening Institutions for Greater Relevance, Effectiveness and Inclusivity.
The conference invites papers addressing the role of different types of actors such as the State, local or traditional authorities, global networks, universities and research institutions, private sector, non-governmental organisations / civil society organisations and media in generating innovation, building capacity and strengthening institutions for sustainable development and inclusive growth. In particular, it aims to explore new approaches to understand innovations and institutional transformations within countries, across different economic sectors, and different operation level (macro, meso and micro), without losing sight of contextual gender disparities.
The conference will also consider the need to tackle new challenges related to innovation and capacity building in addition to inclusive development in knowledge and political systems. The conference also welcomes papers studying how development policies can be implemented at different levels and across different countries to innovate out of emerging crisis of climate change, “resource curse”, youth unemployment, poverty, health and gender inequalities.
The Freeman Lecture will be delivered by Professor Mariana Mazzucato.
We will accept for full paper submissions under 12,000 words and original, in that it has not been presented before.
