4th ITEPE Conference
The Status of Authority in the Globalising Economy: Beyond the Public/Private Distinction
Department of Business and Politics
Copenhagen Business School
Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg, Room SPs07
10-11 December 2015
Theme and Purpose: Over the past decades, large segments of the scholarly debate has been dominated by the perception that state based public authority has been increasingly challenged or even substantially eroded due to increased economic globalisation, the migration of regulatory capacities into transnational settings, and an ever-shorter life cycle of authoritative knowledge. However, many of these accounts fall short of grasping the transformation of authority. They conflate public authority with state authority and overlook how private norm creating frameworks also establish and fulfil public functions. On this background, the conference sets out to redefine the very notions of public and private authority and their relation to and relevance for the related concepts of law, power, coordination, legitimacy and democracy. The conference is sponsored by the European Research Council within the framework of the project ‘Institutional Transformation in European Political Economy – A Socio-Legal Approach’ (ITEPE) hosted by the Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School and is the 4th conference within the ITEPE conference series (www.itepe.eu).
Organisers: Professor MSO Poul F. Kjaer and Assistant Professor Eva Hartmann, Department of Business and Politics, Copenhagen Business School.
Venue: Copenhagen Business School, Solbjerg Plads 3, 2000 Frederiksberg, Room SPs07.
Registration: Mette Grue Nielsen: firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 4th December 2015.
