International Society for Markets and Development Conference Call

The world has undergone significant transformations over the past few decades. Emerging economics, global South or developing nations are those whose economic development measured in GDP has increased most in relative terms. Therefore, the entire notion of “development” and “markets” may it be economic or social can be challenged. Recent research provides useful insights towards this very challenge; Buen vivir, market plasticity, fair development, transformative consumer research to name the few. However, much remains to be uncovered in the broader socio-economic, political, cultural and other areas that work to define contemporary development in the era of the market, market places and market formation. This conference seeks to mobilize diverse and multidisciplinary perspectives in this regard toward a better understanding of the processes of practices of development in contemporary society.
